The Planets

Here it is, online after the festival run. This is the full 12 part animated short “The Planets”. It is the culmination of my year long ‘Illustrated Aliens’ project.

The Planets is an intergalactic animated journey through twelve distinct worlds. In them we find plasticine battles, bored sheep, robots in love, ghostly fish & chips, superhero kids, as well as lots of other shenanigans. These often hilarious, bizarre, and creepy worlds give us a glimpse into a part of outer space that has yet been undiscovered as well as a mirror to how we on Planet Earth spend our lives.

The individual planet animations are collected on their own Vimeo channel.

    I just wanted to say thank you for this. I just stumbled upon it and loved it; funny, creative and a little emotive. One of the finest shorts I’ve come across and something I wish I was able to create. Thanks again and congratulations.

    Just a quick note to say I saw The Planets at the Animation Shorts festival event at Leeds Hyde Park Picture House on Saturday, and I loved it and can’t state enough how utterly awesome and beautiful and funny it was. It was absolutely my pick of the crop on offer and it totally made my day :)
