I see the world in pictures. My eyes love the stop-motion animated short, “Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel.”

I love this movie! I see the world in pictures. My vision often blurs from the miasma of still and motion pictures. Luckily, on the weekends, my brain takes a break and goes to the movies.

This particular weekend, I plan on viewing “127 Days.” The mainstream-media audience will focus in on a big award show dedicated to commercially successful movies. My focus is usually limited to those nominated for best picture.

Like most years, this year I found myself somewhat entertained.

Those tales nominated for the top spot just didn’t evoke the same passion portrayed in “Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel” produced by Niels Michael Wee and directed and written by Sally Andersen Ward.

It is a stellar story told with great artistic clarity using stop-motion animation. (If you really want to know how much I love this movie, check out my post from last year, “A Stellar Story: Left-brained Larry & Right-brained Rachel.”)

Unfortunately, while this film has garnered some critical success, and enjoys a small Facebook group, this amazing movie remains a sleeper.

What can I say? Wake up, world! Wake up, Academy!

Take a moment to enjoy this nearly, nine-minute work of wonder.
