The Kid Should See This

Well Being, an animated short by Domee Shi

An unruly little kid loses a ball down a well, enlisting help from the innocent fella who was being hit with the ball just minutes before. Down into the well by bucket we go. Spot the ball floating in the cave water… and also something quite different… something glowing in the distance.

Well Being is a 2011 student film by Bao director and Pixar storyboard artist Domee Shi. Bao is the opening short to Pixar’s Incredibles 2.

Next, watch: Escape, a science fiction animated short from Moonbot Studios, How to wait for a very long time, Why Do Deep Sea Creatures Look So Scary? and more videos featuring balls.
