The company that made this calls itself "Plasmation". I assume this is a clay process like Claymation, though I also think that perhaps they used soft plastic instead, as I didn't notice the fingerprints and tell-tale signs of the clay. Regardless of what you call it, this is a very nice production and must have taken a lot of work to create. In many ways, the film looks like the wonderful Korean animation, DOGGIE POO (this is no insult--DOGGIE POO is amazingly well made) though the frame rate, thus the smoothness of LOOKING FOR HORSES, is a little less.
The film tells a snippet from the life of two young sisters as they are vacationing with their parents. They are spending time on a quiet island and the film consists of some recollections from this trip--most of which are actually pretty horrible. First, there are the dead and dying rabbits--no doubt the result of the plagues of rabbits in Australia years ago that resulted in massive roundups and poisoning of the rodents. Second, there is a darker side to the trip, as the parents are obviously on edge.
Overall, very well done--especially for film makers with very limited experience. I notice that Plasmation hasn't done anything recently--I sure hope they try again.
