Kittie kittie

A tiny caterpillar naps cosily with his kitty friends. A playful ball of wool wakes up the caterpillar. Teasing and tickling, the ball awakens the caterpillar’s dream to fly. The caterpillar follows the ball to the garden and together with the kitties they amuse themselves and mess around. Finally, the ball of wool leads the way into a spooky place, full of spiders. Their friendship overcomes fear of darkness and turns into magic. Live your dreams and you will fly.

Flat

A featherless nightingale sings in the forest. Its song lulls the little bear to sleep, soothes the squirrels´quarrels and entertains the pair of swans swimming on the pond. One day a storm breaks out in the forest. The nightingale has no coat of feathers, so it catches a cold and can no longer sing.
