As their graduation project, UK-based animators James Lancett and Sean Weston created this awesome animation-juxtaposed-into-real life short.  'Overcast' tells the story of a stylized yet simple animated man, who just can't seem to rid himself of a pestering rain cloud over his head. Finally fed up, he tries to flee from this nuisance.

The overall message appears to be "just accept the downpour", which is, to me, an odd message. Primarily, I loved the use of animation vs. real life: It appears to me that the use rotoscoping has been used, which gives our protagonist some amazingly realistic movement.
