This short is about a guy who lets his imagination run a little too wild and which eventually gets him into trouble.


Its good to see so many animated shorts coming out, but after watching Pixar and Dreamworks at work, it’s sometimes difficult to properly gauge them. The animation here was not of the standard I wanted it to be. It was a bit bland. The detail that separates good animation from great was missing. Having said that, it was way better than many other shorts that I have seen. And it was pretty fast paced, so you will definitely enjoy it.

I am probably being a mean old meany above – animation isn’t entirely that bad (considering I have seen a lot worse). And even the music featured in this short is done nicely. Though the absence of dialogues is a let down.

Distraxion might give you a laugh or two, but that’s just about it. It is hardly 2 minutes so you can’t expect much more. I would have liked it to be a bit longer so the director could be a bit more expressive in his illustration. Even for a short movie it was too darn short.

Distraxion might not be enough to make a crappy day good, but it will just be able to distract you from your problems for a couple of minutes.

By the way, an “x” in the title doesn’t make it look cooler!

Score: 6.5/10
