‘Imagination,’ A Trippy, Nostalgic Stop-Motion Short Film

Director Marc Donahue of PermaGrinn Films brilliantly reloads our fading childhood imaginations with this stop-motion short film set to a remix of “Pure Imagination” from the classic 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

“As children, we viewed the world through the lenses of our imaginations. The carpet became lava, the shadows formed monsters, the family minivan was a spaceship. But the older we got, the more reality set in, and soon we forgot the magic our minds could create. We invite you to step back into your childhood and take a look through the lens once again.”
