Kiwi is a master thesis animation by Dony Permedio of school of arts and is considered the most popular animation on the internet. It's viewed on Youtube 12,890,583 times, favorited 110,022 times and the winner of the first annual video awards under "Most Adorable" category. it's simple in everything, Idea, animation, no marvelous texture. but if there wasn't something special about it, it wouldn’t become that popular, there should be a key for its success. See it on Press and an interview with Dony
I actually came across it through an adv in my Messenger banner, and as I'm interested in animation & cartoon, I looked out for it.
It's a bit sad, cute & innocent! … about a flightless bird ( to know about the real Kiwi bird here ) who dreamt to soar so he built an illusionary spacious for himself on the cliff, as he used to image it in his mind every time he chased his dream … everyone could receive the message from the movie differently.. But for a cute, simple cartoon I don’t think it should be analyzed and complicated further; rather it should be taken as it's, to remain simple, which is the key point that attracted me & I think attracted most of the viewers. I also think there will be a second part of the movie.
One question remains in my mind since I saw the adv on my MSN banner; a 3 min bird's dream leads to an unexpected dream, is the way to fame and success that easy?
What I think of; Don’t bog down, you just desperately need a new approach to use your ideas as a stepping stone
