I am a Forest

watch
Cardboard cuteness from Alex Schulz.

Alex Schulz's adorable animated short "I am a Forest" tells the story of two forest critters whose world gets turned upside-down. Created entirely from paper, the set and characters show off Shulz's impressive scissoring skills. But what's maybe even more amazing is the story itself, which wraps in under a minute. At the end, we're left with a burning question: If a......read more
