This is a short animation we made for the Animation Sequence Project.

The challenge was to animate a square over 10 seconds before returning to its original 250 x 250 pixel state. So naturally we decided to make a space adventure, looking for life on Mars – what else?

Oh, and no music. So we couldn’t use The Blue Danube as hoped (though we did sneak that into our recent tribute to Stanley Kubrick).

There’s a bunch of fantastic short animations on their site ranging from the surreal to the technically challenging and all worth a look.
