"The Feels"

Updated: Feb 27, 2019

12 x 1 minute animated videos, HD 1920 x 1080

This animated series is created for Soulpancake. Each video describes a feeling that does not have an English word for it (but another language has). For example: "Did you ever have the feeling that the food is so good you cannot stop eating?" There is a Georgian word for "I accidentally ate the whole thing": "Shemomechama".

We are working with Soulpancake in Los Angeles whose positive mission is right up my alley: "We make stuff that makes you think, laugh, and cry. 

Other "Feels" are:
