On a dark night, as the clock strikes eight, a mother sends her child upstairs to bed with only a candle for light. The child is wary, then frightened. The child hears something climbing the stairs. We see a birdlike man, his head like a crescent moon, stealthily then noisily approach the child's room. Mother appears to kiss the child good night. Has the sandman been a figment of the child's imagination? Then, he appears in the child's room and, as the child sleeps, leans over and takes something, leaps to the window, throws open the sash, and flies to a nest where two hungry fledglings cry. What has the sandman brought them? Written by
One of the coolest animation shorts I have ever seen
It has been a while since I saw this short, but it totally blew me away. If you ever have the opportunity to see this one, don't pass it up. If the only way you can see it is by purchasing it in an antoholgy, do it, you won't regret it!
