When I first came across this animation I couldn’t believe how much work and imagination went into creating it.

There is really no storyline or a clear message – “Muto” is just “an ambiguous animation painted on public walls” – yet for over 7 minutes it keeps you glued to the screen waiting for what creature is going to come out of the animator’s brush next. To allow everybody to freely share this animation, Blu has licensed it under CC. Enjoy.

I’ve also learned that the title is an interesting play on the Italian word “muto” which means both “mute” and “mutate” – so very appropriate for this short.

The animation was shot in Buenos Aires and in Baden (fantoche).
