A Tale of Momentum & Inertia is just one minute long, but it contains the sort of drama and humor we always hope to see in CG feature films. A rock monster tries to stop a falling boulder from crushing the village at the base of a mountain.

Kirk Kelley served as creative director and Kameron Gates served as director on this short, which was made at HouseSpecial in Portland. The studio does a lot of commercial work, and even those commercials feature plenty of fun CG characters. But we're looking forward to seeing more original narrative work from this group.
