Yes indeed, I agree. A remarkable film in its own right, considering it was created and produced at a school makes it all the more extraordinary. Within the past month its received almost a million Vimeo views.

Heard from the Mac 'n' Cheese folks today with additional info...

.................


Mac 'n' Cheese is an animated short directed and created by four students at the Utrecht School of Arts in the Netherlands. This roughly two minute animation took about five months to make, and about a bajillion peanut butter sandwiches.

Synopsis: When you find yourself running scared and running out of energy, there's only a few options left to outrun your opponent through the southern desert. Stopping at nothing, watch these two guys wear each other out and rip through boundaries hitherto unbroken. Enjoy the ride!

Tools used:

- Autodesk Maya
- Eyeon Fusion
- Pixologic Zbrush
- Adobe Photoshop
- TVPaint

Inspired by Team Fortress 2 and Meet Buck.

Credits:

- Animation: Tom Hankins, Gijs van Kooten, Guido Puijk, Roy Nieterau

- Music & Audio Design: Giulio Sterbini, Wouter Messelink, Peter-Paul Timmermans
