The Whaler In This Animated Short Really Puts His Heart Into His Work

There's a common misconception that hunters who work in the whaling industry are coldhearted killers who derive a sadistic pleasure from taking down those giants of the sea.

But they must have felt guilty about their actions at some point in their lives, since it's so very human to care despite our desire to drown our emotions .

Some go a bit mad, others quit the biz or take out their anger and frustration on the whales, but the guy in this animated has a sinister way of dealing with his emotions- he keeps his heart in a box.

Whale Heart was created by 3rd year animation students from The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark, and I really dig both the morbid theme and stop motion/practical look of the CGI textures.
