How To Juice A Lime


How To Juice A Lime from Jeff Call on Vimeo.

This is the first assignment I did for my experimental animation class at BYU. I've been wanting to do this for almost a year now and the assignment gave me an excuse. I'd also like to give a shout out to my wife, Shannon, for lending a hand with this (she manned the camera a few times and operates the newspaper on the wire). This was a lot of fun. Hope you enjoy.

I should also give credit where credit is due. I was most definitely inspired by this CalArts film: http://vimeo.com/11790948
