JohnnyExpress Animated Short

Something fun to brighten up your Friday - an animated short film about a lazy and careless delivery man. The short is titled JohnnyExpress from animator Kyungmin Woo, about Johnny, a "Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages" but is lazy, prefers to sleep and just use autopilot. The animation is great, but of course there's a poignant message behind this which, even though it's set 136 years in the future, still applies to today. The animation house behind this is Alfred Imageworks, a motion graphic studio based in Korea - see more of their videos. Need a laugh? This short will do the trick. Enjoy!

Thanks to The Verge on the tip. From Vimeo: "It's 2150. There are all sorts of Aliens living throughout space. Johnny is a Space Delivery Man who travels to different planets to deliver packages. Johnny is lazy and his only desire is to sleep in his autopilot spaceship. When the spaceship arrives at the destination, all he has to do is simply deliver the box. However, it never goes as planned. Johnny encounters strange and bizarre planets and always seems to cause trouble on his delivery route. Will he be able to finish his mission without trouble?" Written, directed & animated by Kyungmin Woo of Alfred Imageworks. How was that?

That was great. Reminds me a bit of the old Wallace and Gromit shorts. I hope we see more of Johnny Express and his mishaps.

The design was fun but the animation could have been much better. The story was absolutely hilarious which is what made it great.

Pretty good. WALL-E-esque.
