Watch An Award-Winning Pixar-Like Short Film Which Shows How Society Destroys Your Creativity

“Alike”, a Pixar-like affair by Madrid-based animators Daniel Martínez Lara and Rafa Cano Méndez, is a 7-minute lesson on what happens to your life when creativity is drowned out by the daily grind, a feeling I’ve been experiencing all too much lately – but that’s another story.

The short film is also about parenthood and the importance of letting kids forge their own journeys.

The critically-acclaimed short was made entirely with Blender, an open-source 3D rendering program, and is dedicated “to our families, for helping us not to lose our colour.”
