For today, I selected an award-winning animation featuring an afflicted coyote dealing with the loss of his family. It’s not easy for an animation, particularly when done in an hallucinogenic style, to bring out feelings of empathy, Coyote does just that.

Empathy is what we all need as we navigate through life interacting with others including, humans, animals, plants, and even spaces. The idea for this film was by Lorenz Wunderle, a Swiss animation student. It began as his graduation thesis. Lorenz realized he was onto something powerful and wouldn’t give up even after being rejected multiple times by animation and production houses. He believes the most important thing in a project like this is the story – he worked for two years on the script.

In a psychedelic color palette, to the soundtrack of country music, and in wild landscapes mixing real and imaginary worlds the young director Lorenz Wunderle accomplishes what a piece of good art should do: moves us, makes us feel something.

The short was a Vimeo Staff Pick Premiere this week. In his interview he offers a good piece of advice to aspiring filmmakers and every creative out there. “Take your time to develop an idea for a project. If you have the idea, let it marinate for a while in your head. Check again later on the idea and when it tastes ready, cook it up and serve it to your friends. Fast food is not always good.”
