    Ooooo that is so charming! Great short; obviously a homage to The Master Miyazaki (flippers!), but well done, well done. . .

    Is that okay, though, to send a blind girl walking outside without a stick in a first place?
    I also wonder if the dog’s behaviour was acceptable for a guide dog.

    I could tell when she reacted strangely to the fence that she must be blind. But the fearless way she interacted with her world, turning it into a fantastical place, was beautiful. Thanks for posting the video, Rob.

    Reminds me of a Canadian NFB film called “Nightangel” at least in relation to the object appearing by touch/sound/smell to the blind party (REALLY good NFB short too)

    I can’t really think of the words to describe how that made me feel, but it did just that, made me feel.

    I’m going to have to share this around.

    So charming and beautifully animated, great to see such work coming from countries other then Japan and Korea.

    That was a pleasure to view, I myself have a hearing disability and it is nice to see the beautiful work you put in here, showing a blind persons view of the world through their eyes… absolutely brilliant!

    This is great–it reminds me of the little animated shorts I would see on Nickelodeon as a kid.

      I thought the same thing. I thought of it like it was one of those Canadian-made filler cartoons from the late 80s of Nickelodeon *with a touch of Ponyo

    That was lovely. It reminded me of something Scott McCloud said in his amazing book: “Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art”

    (Pgs 60-61)“When I was very young, I had a recurrent daydream that the whole world was just a show put on for my benefit, that unless I was present to see things, they just ceased to exist. Later if life, I found others who had similar daydreams as children. None of us ever really believed these theories, but we had all been fascinated by the fact that they could not be disproved. Even today, as I draw this panel, I have no guarantee that anything exists outside of what my five senses report to me. (Not to say our senses are any kind of guarantee!)”
