Edmond was a donkey


Edmond was a donkey from Franck Dion on Vimeo.

A good brain shared this film and wrote a very insightful and interesting post on his excellent creative blog here: http://summerlad.com/edmund-was-a-donkey/

To said good brain I say this – Thank you for bringing me out of my slump.  I’m currently wearing a paper capital L on my head but I’m embracing it and off to find my pasture. (Oh and by pasture I mean Loser Lounge where I’m allowed to sit on an L-shaped sofa wearing PJs all day while I watch endless movies and eat cheesy Doritos and Quality Street washed down with case after case of perfectly chilled dry white wine for the rest of  my days without getting fat, getting a headache, getting cirrhosis of the liver or developing suppurating sofa sores.  BTW, it is always raining outside the window of Loser Lounge to remove any feelings of guilt at staying in and prevent the compulsion to go out for a walk or something equally absurd.) 🙂

This charming animation tells a tender and poignant tale that bears many great truths for many. In fifteen minutes your eyes will open and you will see yourself clearly and all your fellow donkeys.

‘Edmond is not like everybody else. A small, quiet man, Edmond has a wife who loves him and a job that he does extraordinarily well. He is, however, very aware that he is different. When his co-workers tease him by crowning him with a pair of donkey ears, he suddenly discovers his true nature. And though he comes to enjoy his new identity, an ever-widening chasm opens up between himself and others.’
