Watch this student animator's quirky film about insomnia

Animation student Islena Neira had just five days to prepare a two-minute piece for coursework at Ecole des Métiers du Cinéma d'Animation in France. The result is Insomnia.

The style is a mix of comic book halftone patterns and linoleum block prints. The staccato piano accompaniment really makes the whole thing work.

Bonus video: A Cat, another short subject by Islena:
