The Eye // Comedy Short Film

The Eye is a PSA for summer days.

This animated entry in the Evil Grin Gift Box series began as an excerpt of a longer short called Cancellation Notice. In a meta-plot, the writers of Evil Grin break their camera and are forced to rely on animation, pitching a series of terrible ideas to their boss. The Eye was the funniest of the three animated sketches, and after to showing it to several people, we determined that it stood on its own better than in the context of the original meta-sketch.
