Partly Cloudy

Pixar's use of 3D animation is incredible, but you also have to admire their knack for story telling. In just 2 minutes, the creators of this piece were able to develop character, create a conflict, and convey a message. And how inventive is this short! It takes an entirely unique look at the classic stork story by developing character out of a creature conjuring cloud. I think one of the powers of animation is to create characters out of the inanimate and this piece represents that greatly. In no other medium could you create a character out of a cloud and convey such emotion through this character. I think story-tellers of all forms could learn a lot about conflict and character arc through Pixar shorts.
