Walt Disney Feature Animation have recently released their first teaser trailer for Leo Matsuda's debut short Inner Workings.
Directed by storyboard artist Leo Matsuda, Inner Workings is a peek into the humdrum life of an office drone who one day in particular decides to let his heart overrule his head. Lured by the sun, sea, food and fun outside the monolithic tower in which he toils each day, he is tempted, but constantly kept in check by his nervous brain, concerned that every step outside his routine will lead to an untimely death.
And yes, as the title suggests, the actual focus of the short is his head, his heart and, to a lesser degree, his stomach and lungs. But while the concept of delving inside someone's system might remind you of Pixar Animation Studios Inside Out (2015), it is actually a clever, very different take on the conflict that can bubble up within us all.
You can see Inner Workings alongside Moana, which is out in cinemas now.
