Eat Your Carrots Short Film

Make sure you eat all your vegetables today - they're important for your health and well being. Though after watching this short, you might want to leave the carrots for another day? Eat Your Carrots is a fun stop-motion animated short film made by a Montreal-based filmmaker named Laura Stewart. The strange little 3-minute short is about a girl who finds an eyeball growing on her arm after, well, eating her carrots. It's animated using felt and fabric, and it's cute and funny and freaky and weird all at once. I wish there was more to this, but it's just a fun little journey into the kooky mind of an animation filmmaker. If anything, I hope the attention this short gets allows Laura to keep making more funky felt stop motion animated films like this. Perhaps she should make a whole series about various vegetables and their many health "benefits"?
