Time is short, the beautiful Cicada Princess

Cicada_Princess_Still

It’s late and I’m out of time, so aptly enough I’ve a quick post about how precious time is. Illustrated beautifully in the non-animation by Mauchi Baiocchi the Cicada Princess tells the story of the little insects fleeting time with a whimsy and skill that is truly delightful. Non-animation because it’s not stop frame but is actually puppetry. Stephen Fry provides his usual vocal deftness with a voice over that is charming and insightful. Do yourself a favour waste several minutes of your precious time watching this.[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/84058031[/vimeo]
