Thoughts on Thinking

An animated short that I have made for the Dutch version of the children’s tv-show Sesame Street.

Sesame Street commissioned me to make an animation on a short poem composed by writer Karel Eykman and read out by actor Aart Staartjes. The poem imaginatively explains what goes on inside your brain when you are thinking up thoughts and utterances.

To show how that works, I have visualized the world inside our heads as a little factory where thoughts and words are made. I painted the scenery by hand, using shades of gray to provide a stark contrast with the colourful thoughts and words that eventually go out in the wide world. 

This animation was shown at KROK, BIAF, Anibar and reAnimania.
