Blue: An Erotic Life

A blue blob of clay’s love for sex leads him into dark places.

This film had some nasty elements and I almost didn’t post it because of the scene of violence. But I appreciate the dark sense of humour and there is something rather hilarious about showing blobs of modelling clay having sex. The rhyming narration is also a bit of fun.

The blurb: BLUE: An Erotic Life is a stop motion animation that narrates the life story of a blob of clay dealing with sexual addiction. The piece plays on the contrast between graphic adult content and grotesque stop motion. The combination of the two makes for an absurd, dark humored short film.

This film was Tibo’s BFA Student Thesis from Parsons School of Design.
