5 Metres 80

I received a link to this short film from a loved one last night with the introduction: I know you’re not a huge fan of CGI, but seeing this I think you’ll agree that it’s been put to some pretty good use.

Oh, INDEED IT HAS! I’m generally opposed to elaborate CGI that is used as a crutch to compensate for lackluster storytelling and character development.

High-diving giraffes, however, are clearly what this medium was truly invented for.

Can we just pretend this is exactly what happens in public swimming pools, after hours?

Thank you, GD!

    wow, this is phenomenal! i just hope the pool they’re all drinking from in the end isn’t chlorinated!!

      Little known fact: giraffe necks contain a 6 foot carbon filter…so they’re safe drinking from any pool. Nature is amazing.

  2. Hahaha! They’re getting some crazy use out of those necks!
