This animated short from Malcolm Sutherland is an engaging dance of shapes and sounds. The "game" is played by opening the box, unfolding the board and placing shapes on it that you manipulate with your hands. There are no winners or losers in this game; the fun is in the creative way the forms unfold. Features a score by Luigi Alleman and music by Ravi Shankar.

    nice use of positive and negative space. And the ending which is not what I expected, is delightful.

    This film is in keeping with another canadian film animation using beads. The origin of life and the evolution of species culminating in shaping man seems to be the theme and the idea. The child hints at the game of life which has no end or at least cyclic. I liked the way the idea is animated.
