Eggplant: An Animated Short by Yangzi She

Yangzi She’s UCLA thesis project is a gorgeous and touching animated short about a boy with a unique problem: his facial expressions show the opposite of what he’s feeling inside.

This short film entranced us with its dreamy, evocative illustrations and story. Although She is still a student, this is her second work to be a Vimeo staff pick, and she is already racking up awards for her animation work (among her honors, she was a semifinalist in the Adobe Design Achievement Awards).

Enjoy Eggplant, and visit She’s portfolio site to see more of her work.
