WIND is an animated short about the daily life of people living in a windy area who seem helplessly exposed to the weather. However, the inhabitants have learned to deal with their difficult living conditions. The wind creates a natural system for living.

Getting there is half the fun all the work.

That is so strange. I'd swear I saw this via MeFi a few days ago, but I can't find the post. Ah well, good to see it here again. There's so much great animation on Vimeo nowadays.

I wonder if anyone has forwarded this to Larry Niven -- one of his Known Space worlds is dubbed We Made It (the first ship there crash-landed), and in his tradition of oddball planetary conditions, is aligned on its axis such that half the year it suffers from 500-mph winds. His frequently-revisited character Beowulf Shaeffer is a Crashlander, but apparently other than this accident of birth, Niven couldn't work out any stories set there.

The wind is misunderstood. From this previous post, whose links are now dead.

I'm having a hard time believing the animator's coursework at HAW would not have included watching Ivan Maximov's Wind Along the Coast, which sets the precedent (and bar) for this conceit...

Ha! The best part was the little dude taking the shower.

Now, if it would only stop blowing here, because all you can do is grin and bear it put on more clothes. Brrrrrr.
