OVERVIEW

A man sitting on the beaches of a tropical island enjoying the music of the land along with the whistle of the winds and waves. Enjoying the finer things in life that is a piña colada. Until a harsh reality of a pandemic hits and breaks his daydream. Standing in a grocery store surrounded by the sickness staring at a can of pineapple juice, succumbing to the urge to buy it brings forth the idea that the little things, like a piña colada, can help you through a pandemic when all else seems lost.

OUR GOAL

Our goal was to keep our sanity during the 2020 world wide pandemic "Covid 19". Our studio was at a lock down but we wanted to keep animating so we came up with a short animation as a reflection of what we were going through during the pandemic in Wisconsin.
