Ok I'm speechless.

This clip contains something soooooooo whimsical and directly hooked into to the primal pleasures of animation.

(Not to mention the coordination of many people to create something spectacular, beautiful and gentle.)

Pass it on I'm sure all animators would get something from this.

I don't know about anyone else, but I was amazed at how easy it was to not see the wires and rig once she was walking down the street.
