Why Watch? The short that gave birth to CGI animation at Sony.

In the early 2000s, the studio decided to test its ability to put together a completely CGI animated film, and the result/challenge was The ChubbChubbs! – a goofy animated story about a night club janitor on an alien planet that is called to the higher task of saving his people from a roving band of monsters (after he’s warned by Jar Jar Binks that they’re coming). It’s funny in a ridiculous, under-dog sort of way, and it represents the first movement into territory that’s now a decade old for the company.

For more historical context, this won the Oscar in 2003 after seeing theaters…in front of Men in Black.

What does it cost? Just 5 minutes of your time.
