Outside the Box

Outside the Box is a short animation I dreamt up in college. Its the story of a small robot that is also a floor tile. Basically, it is about how changes in our environment not only dictate who we are, but also aid us in our own self-realization. We can learn a lot about who we are from our surroundings. The ball serves as the catalyst for change, after it drops into the open room. Eventually the ball if fought over, and springs out of the room. That leaves the droids clambering to escape. One makes it out and returns through a side door with the ball. He throws it to another droid, and walks away. All the other droids pile out of the room, the ball no longer important when compared to what lies outside.
