A germaphobic octopus tries to get a cleaner’s attention after a little kid makes a mess of his tank. But boy, does that backfire.

We were approached by our colleagues at Ka-Ching Cartoons to help them out with the effect animation for their animated short Inkt.

We highly recommend seeing this short in the cinema for example at an animation festival so you experience the original stereoscopic 3D version.
