This is a fun short film that explores a very cute dog fantasy. It is entertaining to watch, although I wish it was longer because it feels as if something is missing. The animation is very well done. The dog is done in 2D animation and, when it moves you sometimes see the drawing lines which seems odd, but is shockingly charming. The music and sound effects are minimal and get the point across. It flows well and will project nicely on the big screen. Kids will love it! I recommend this for the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival. It is perfect for the festival kind of environment. A child would enjoy this. Dogs are a strong subject for children. I recommend it for ages 4 to 11 and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Opposite's attract. A playful 2D pup encounters a curious new toy, a 3D basketball that unfortunately has a mind (and stomach) of its own.
