Umbra is a hand drawn animation, a mix of drawing and pastel, that I came across about a year ago. It is still one of my favorites. Simple drawings with such a huge impact. The animation conveys such great emotion. I must have watched this a million times. I have a little folder in my bookmarks for links to watch when feeling a little in the dumps creatively. This video is at the top of the list. I hope you love it as much as I do.


  1. This is beautiful and my 3 year old loved it. Anyone know of any other animations like this suitable for young children, we watch far too much warner brothers! Thanks.

  2. Hello, Beth! is full of neat animations suitable for kids. I would make an account and search for Animation. You can favorite the videos you like and make a playlist for your little Kiddo to watch! I used to teach a stop motion animation class as an after school class for kids and they loved all the animations I found on vimeo for them to watch. Hope that helps!

  3. Wow, really beautiful work. congrats!
