I was pretty much blown away by this charmingly atmospheric SF indie animated short, sent to me recently by its creator Seattle based Designer/Animator Ian Obermuller. This first episode in a planned series revolves around an amnesiac lost in an alien jungle where he encounters a mysterious doctor and his strange companions…

Self Absorb is an extremely http://www.mindanews.com/buy-paxil/ quirky blend of cartoon visuals, black humour and general weirdness – love it! especially the vocal FX. The Animation and imagery were created using a combination of After Effects, Illustrator and of course Photoshop.
