Back in the Day

The plot concept is super simple: This slice-of-life shows us the day of an 80's era regular, middle class family. Nothing too crazy: Dad wakes the kids up, Mom makes breakfast, then school, dinner and so on and so forth. I think that's what drew me to this 3D animated short: the simplicity of everyday life and routine (not that I'd want that every day, but you know what I mean). The art direction is pretty whimsical, employing a style for the characters reminiscent of a bizarre cross between Mr. Potato Head and Fisher Price's Little People. Back In The Day was created by animator Rok Predin, in collaboration with the UK-based Trunk Animation.
