PLAN, A cover image
Very enjoyable short. Non-narrative. The images are simple, yet well drawn. Animation smooth, sound effects simple and appropriate. From the beginning, we see that the boy has a vivid imagination. When he sees a problem, he comes up with creative solutions.
A boy with an active imagination spends a day out with his parents in a boat. He concludes that the boat will run out of gas and, rather than tell his father, sets about creating a plan to save the day. 'A Plan' details the pleasures of a day on the water with lyrical animation and meticulous, yet unassuming sound design. And with a gentle, comic detachment the film examines the pressures that reality brings to bear upon a boy's self-aggrandizing fantasies.
