A bunch of blue clay men who live on a table are contacted by another species of clay people through radio. Now 4 brave blue clay men will leave the table for the first time ever in order to find these mysterious clay men.
Klay World isn't actually a world, it's just a table with a bunch of blue klaymen on it. They have never accomplished anything with their sad little lives ... until another species of claymen communicate with them over radio. Now Klay World has a chance to finally become something bigger. The only problem is that they have to leave the table for the first time ever and travel through the outdoors to find these new klay people. Written by
The original plot was about Klay World being invaded by a bunch of "aliens", but Robert Benfer decided that it would be better to take them to a completely different place that his characters have never been before and mix that plot with the alien plot. See more »

For an 18 year old's debut movie made almost entirely by himself, this movie is a masterpiece.
Compared to any short Knox has on the internet, the quality on this movie is excellent. The claymen look good and some of the characters are very well designed. The green screening and some special effects in the movie may not be top budget Hollywood style effects, but he still manages to pull off a convincing viewing pleasure. Knox also has really done well with the sound in this movie. He puts music in the right places. Although there is silence at some parts, it suits this type of movie. Animation in the movie is super and the plot is written well, though I personally think that the claymen didn't spend enough time "off the table" which is the gimmick of the whole film. Nevertheless, the problems with the plot are shadowed by the most important part of any Knox movie; the humour. This movie is hilarious. Knox never fails to make people laugh. This movie will have you rolling on the floor in laughter in no time. Although there is a part of the movie when it starts to drag, it picks right up again and a big action scene, which I say is very well animated for a claymation. Knox really put a lot of effort into this, and it really shows.
The special features on the DVD are excellent. There are two commentaries which are very funny. I must give kudos to Knox for having the patience to be able to talk for hours, even if it was mostly about krap.
If you want a movie that makes you laugh so much that you turn into smiling gary yourself, then this is the movie for you.
