A GUM BOY

OKUDA Masaki

Animated short film [Japan]

Gum boy, an elementary school kid who beloves chewing gums, is hated in his class. When everyone flies their balloons, Gum boy alone doesn't let it go. On the way home from school, he begins chewing and is transported into an imaginary world. The balloon he holds becomes a face, and then transforms into various things, but a bird lies by... A GUM BOY is a bubbling animation of watercolor drawings.(3 min. 48sec.)
