Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde

With the beginning of Daylight Savings Time in many parts of the US I am sure I’m not alone in being a little tired and rather grumpy this Monday morning. For that reason I can get on board with a bit of random and indiscriminate mayhem. This short was written as a PC benchmark to test computer speed and abilities. While I’m sure it does that job well, it is also a good primer on the dangers inherent in two-cat households.
The main idea of the project was to develop an antithesis of other benchmark productions which are mostly boring and aesthetically weak. Michał Staniszewski from the demoscene Plastic group came to us with a draft of an interesting, action-filled story with a unique design and aesthetics that would be as close as possible to an animated movie on one hand and to a video game on the other.
A collaboration between Platige Image and Plastic Demoscene Group.
