“Geoff” (2017)

It feels kind of tacky to review an advertisement, but given this basically acts as an animated short film, I figure there’s no reason not to. This is a surprisingly great little short. The animation is surprisingly excellent; like top-tier level. The character designs are wonderful and convey the personalities of the characters beautifully. This short is simplistic, but even so, and perhaps because of it, manages to convey genuine emotion. Even though it can’t shake off the feeling that this is intended to be one long extended ad (Heinz’s name is all over it), this film manages to fit in so much charm and likability in such a short runtime, and does it so effortlessly. There really is no other word to describe this film than “likable,” and is so easy to recommend.
