You've Been Mimed

Take note if you are a hijacker, holdup artist, housebreaker! When you plan your next robbery (daylight or otherwise) make sure that you do not steal from a group of mime artists.  These chaps are tenacious to say the very least and will pursue their stolen property until it is recovered using their special mime secret powers!

This is a hugely enjoyable (not to mention conceptually very clever) animated short by John Kim who created You’ve Been Mimed for his studies at CalArts. It was made using quite a combination of software - TV paint, Photoshop, AfterEffects and Final Cut and comes together very well indeed!  Thanks John!
