One young hermit crab is fast outgrowing his shell so he decides to go in search of a new home. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it first seems... One of the most important thing is animation is character development and Yevgeni Krachak has succeeded in this brilliantly. We really feel for this little guy and hope that he finds a home soon.

This animated short was created by Krachak as his third year project at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem.  His brief was to combine CG with live footage. It’s rather more than an exercise in the bringing together of two formats – he has created a little character here around which a whole movie could be created.
