Tom Rosenthal: “Forests” - 3 mins 02s

Director and animator Katy Wang brings her signature textural style to this promo for Tom Rosenthal's ‘Forests'. Set in a world where bears and dogs can drive and furry mountains bound across the landscape, Wang's three-minute outing is one of the more whimsical creature features you're likely to see.

As Rosenthal's mellow ballad lilts in the background, a little bear ditches life in the backseat and embarks on a land, sea, and air odyssey. While we advise young passengers not to follow this ursine daredevil's example, there is plenty to admire in this promo's colourful escape to the country.
