Dave is an animator at Sheep Films. He’s been animating for 25 years and is based out of Brighton, England. Earlier today he posted an animation on Twitter asking the question, “If baguettes could move, how would they move?” He also asked people to explain their choices.
Naturally, many people had different answers and opinions on why their choices made the most sense.
Many chose option three.
This person even added a fifth option…
…and some people posed important questions.
One person even chose to focus on the baguette’s feelings!
Dave eventually added his own poll — with option three being the front runner.
“Number 3 was the first one I came up with and felt like the funniest, but number 2 is my favorite as it’s the most dynamic,” Dave explained to BuzzFeed.
He went on to explain what inspired him to create this animation.
It was inspired by a couple of things. One was a small, stale baguette that I 3D scanned to create a 3D computer model, combined with wanting to learn a piece of 3D animation software. The second was Tumblr’s content filtering that ended up flagging baguettes as mature content, specifically in animations by the wonderful animator https://k-eke.tumblr.com/ (@Kekeflipnote on Twitter). I decided to make GIFs to trick the filter into flagging as mature content, simply as a joke.
