Time Out

This short animation stars a small cat with a long striped tail who just can't seem to get organized. He bustles about the room doing morning house chores, but gets preoccupied with the next one before he has properly completed the previous one. Eventually, his day turns into a much stranger, more surreal, and more sadistic adventure than he ever could have anticipated. From award-winning Estonian filmmaker Priit Pärn comes another playfully absurd and whimsical film that challenges traditional animation techniques, with the hand of the animator entering the image and spinning the screen itself.
