Film stills from “The Life and Death of Wriggly Chew”. This film is about a piece of bubble gum who gets eaten by a little boy during class. Once inside the boy’s mouth, the gum feels a beat emerge from the rhythmic chomping and begins to dance. The boy blows a bubble which pops and disturbs the class. The teacher gives the boy a stern look and he proceeds to get rid of the gum. Naturally he discards it by sticking it under his desk. This is where the gum finds himself cold and alone in, what is essentially, a gum graveyard. The bell rings and there is a class change. Fortune favors the gum however as the little girl who takes the boy’s place is indifferent to social etiquette and cooties. She reaches down, finds the ‘fresh’ piece of gum, and pops it in her mouth. The beat starts again and the credits roll.
phew I figured I’d describe the whole film as I’m having difficulty at the moment trying to upload it. I will keep trying though.
best moment is when he splits into 5 and dance

A short narrative animation about the rhythmic life, and near death experience, of a piece of bubble-gum.
I like your animation. Well done. I also like your characters. Teacher is great. Boy is also nicely mnodeled. You have picked good rendering style for your animation. It wouldn’t look good if it was rendered in less cartoony style.
