February 10, 2014 – The Stop-Motion Animated Short Film Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story is Released Through Google Play
“When you are born blank in a painted world, love can give you color.”
On February 10, 2014, the stop-motion short film Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story was released through Google Play, after a release at the El Capitan Theater on February 3. It was directed by Greg Shewchuk, Paul Foyder, Michael Ambs, Whitfield Scheidegger, and Regina Roy.
The short begins with the character Blank being released into the painted world, and soon spotting Bow, a similarly blank Vinyl. Bow gives Blank a bow tie, and the two watch the sunrise together, with Blank giving Bow a flower. The mood quickly changes when a strange creature arrives and takes Blank Minnie away on a train. Not wanting to lose his love, Blank Mickey hops on the top of the train as it rolls along, and sets off on an adventure to find her, making unlikely friendships, traveling through the woods at night, and doing whatever it takes to find her.
