Kudos to Travel Oregon for making a beautiful animated promotional video, called "Only Slightly Exaggerated." It was written and produced by Portland's own Wieden + Kennedy. Animation by Psyop and Sun Creatures Studio, and music by OregonSymphony.

The spot depicts popular outdoor activities in Oregon like mountain biking the North Umpqua Trail, swimming at Trillium Lake, and hot air ballooning over Willamette Valley wine country.

Ugly is an animated film by Nikita Diakur and Redbear Easterman that examines the way all living things are connected, even the ugly ones.
