A stop motion made in conjunction with Sergio Mora.
Claude is a cloudy creature who has a self esteem problem after seeing his own reflection in a little puddle. He takes a journey and meets other creatures. He ends up swallowing each creature he meets, assuming their appearance. Having too much he swagger at the last scene back to the puddle and explodes into all of the pieces that made him so colorful.
The ending gives a window for imagination as one of the little pieces takes life and looks like a tiny version of the original claude.
This video was made in a far-flung basement somewhere in NYU (secret). The making of it involved the handcrafting of claude and the other creatures, the set and lightings and the creation of the original sounds.
