The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper MorelloDirected byAnthony Lucas
A great piece of animation. Loved the style - people portrayed as silhouettes adds an eerie, steampunk feel to the short and the cartoon seems to represent the imagery in one's mind as they read Jasper's diary. Unfortunately, the storytelling is a bit off and the beginning drags on a little, but I found the ending does make up for that greatly.
