In a perfect world—or at least in the perfect world I have in my mind—kids would learn about chemistry, history, or human evolution theory through claymation short films as cute and clever as this one. Actually, adults would learn like this too. Everything could use more claymation.

The short film, Ape, was directed by Anita Yen and Eustace Ng—both students at the Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada.

If you enjoyed the short film, vote for it in the Sploid Short Film Festival by giving it a like on YouTube.
