Fly Me To The Moon

Fly Me To The Moon is an animated sci-fi short by Miklós Felvidéki. He and a small team of animators created the 5-minute film for a university assignment based on a comic from his high school years.

It tells the story of a fox who wakes up in a strange place with a hangover, probably not for the first time. While striving to make his way home, world-shaking events take place in the background. The film presents a grotesque parallel vision of inner and physical journeys as well as the incompatibility of monumental and insignificant events.

The short very cleverly contrast the mundane with the surreal. The limited palette, pacing, and the sparse setting ground the otherwise very absurd tale.

You can see some of the concept art for the short on Behance. You can also find more of Miklós Felvidéki’s work on Tumblr, DeviantArt, and Twitter.
