Cloudy, a musical animation from FriendsWithYou

Cloudy is a musical animated short by artists Samuel Borkson and Arturo Sandoval III of FriendsWithYou. Welcome to the clouds. A description from IAmOther:

This animated short is an exploration into the clouds; a sweet, visual soundscape that takes the viewer through a personal journey into the sky. Sing, dance and relax as you follow a cast of clouds and raindrops through an entrancing adventure you’ll wish to take over and over again. 

FriendsWithYou explores animism, giving the main cast of characters a soul. The purpose of the piece is to transcend the viewer to a peaceful and joyous state. Clouds singing and performing their duties in a joyful manner show us that everything in our world has a role and a purpose.

The kids were giggling pretty hard at this one. It’s a favorite.
