Sweet Dreams by Kirsten Lepore

This stop-motion animated film by Kirsten Lepore definitely hits the sweet spot. A white frosted cupcake gets away from the confection city, searching for something more than sugar highs and the candy coated life while aboard his sailboat made out of sugarcubes. He is then cast ashore an unusual territory: the island of vegetables.

So who is this talented animator/director?

Kirsten Lepore is an animator and director born in New Jersey and now is based at L.A. She indeed has a hard-earned gift for making the inanimate emotional. (via) She is also best known for Bottle, a 6-minute animated film which details a transoceanic conversation between two characters via objects in a bottle.

I won't spoil the film for you but I'm sure you'll get something out of this treat. You can even say this has nutritional value! Hehe. Hit play and discover how making it to the other side can change your life's perspective.
