I had forgotten about Balance. I saw it years ago in a movie theater as part of a night of animation. Wonderful. Thanks.

Alternately, people can just download Balance to their computer.

Blue Man Group totally ripped off that film's entire aesthetic.

Drags on a bit, but on the whole a very nice work. Makes me crave some super monkey ball.

This is a wonderful short.

I have to admit though, I'm confused - it seems the box and one person are balanced by four people. Then how can the box balance with just one? Is it his location at the very edge of the platform? Or is it just anal to worry about such things?

It's been my all time favorite animation for years.
