Disney Interactive and Google teamed up to launch “Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story,” an original animated short film. It is completely free on googleplay, and even if it wasn’t, I would suggest you watch it. First and foremost, I love the animation. When a movie like this comes out and is just so visually pleasing, it makes for a fun time regardless. Adding in a story that touches you makes this a complete masterpiece. An unpainted character who comes out different than the rest embarks on a journey to find his soul mate. Wow!
Having always felt different myself, I found this to be such a perfect premise, for not only adult that might have forgotten what it is like to be a kid, but also and especially for children who might feel that way themselves. Filmed in stop motion, Blank is a totally epic tale, it makes you feel good when you watch it and was surprising how much I could identify with a blank character. I watched this first myself, and then immediately thought of the people I would like to watch it with later. It is an inspiring tale with adorable and loveable characters, set in a beautiful backdrop of rich animation.
The emotion was strong through the entire film from each and every frame and interaction. The story of love, and finding love, though being an outcast was one that really pulled at my heartstrings. The message and uplifting spirit of this film made it one I definitely wanted to share to help inspire my own daughter. Movies like this are not just entertaining, but an important tool in helping to start a dialogue with your child on what it means to be yourself in the world we live in. It’s paramount for our children to know that despite our differences we are deserving of the magic and wonder that the world has to offer, and that love, friendship, and companionship are right around the corner.
It immediately became one of my most favorite and magical Disney movies! It was a familiar tale, but completely different! Tears welled up in my eyes a few times while watching this, and I certainly will watch it again. In fact, I am already thinking about popping some popcorn and having a movie night tonight with my daughter and husband. I know that they both will love it just as much as I do.
Not only can you enjoy the movie for free, but in celebration of the premiere, Google is also inviting you to share frames from the film with friends and family as digital greeting cards at blankmovie.withgoogle.com. This allows you to unlock a second special film, “Cranes in Love,” created especially for Google users. Do yourself a favor, and watch this movie!
