This past Valentine’s Day I discovered that Google was letting people send Valentine postcards to one another. The postcards had snapshots from a movie called Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story. After sending a postcard off to Gene I found the link to the movie and decided I needed to watch it.
It’s a free, 30 minute claymation movie about a Mickey Vinylmation that doesn’t have a character painted on him, he’s just blank. He goes in search of a blank Minnie whom he had met and lost earlier. Mickey finds himself on a little adventure, making friends and learning lessons along the way.
It is a sweet movie that anyone who is a fan of Disney, stop motion, love, or encouragement should watch.
There are no words, just music and sound effects, and that’s all that this movie needs. The claymation is cute and was the perfect choice for this short. I will definitely watch this again whenever I need a pick-me-up. It’s a story about following your own path and making a better world, watch it if you have the chance.
