An Object at Rest: A stone’s adventure through time

An Object at Rest is Seth Boyden‘s final thesis film at CalArts. He writes:

This year’s story follows the life of a stone as he travels over the course of millions of years, facing nature’s greatest obstacle: human civilization. This film is an exciting conceptual exploration, and also (since it takes place in the American Midwest) pays as a tribute to some of the historical events and places I learned growing up in Indiana.
