The Kid Should See This

Cycle, an animated short by Sophie Olga de Jong

Things don’t always go according to plan but in this “small round story” about a girl who, with her grandfather’s help, learns how to ride a bicycle, the unexpected helps develop new skills and confidence. The girl discovers “that where the road ends, real adventure begins.”

This is Amsterdam-based Sophie Olga de Jong‘s celebrated short animation for all ages: Cycle.
