Storyline

Ominous signs are everywhere as a bookworm, in shorts, sneakers, and a backpack, walks down a sidewalk reading. A page of a newspaper blows into his face; it's overcast and begins to rain; a dog barks viciously. He boards a bus and sits in back, puts on headphones and continues reading, noticing a goldfish in water inside a knotted plastic bag beside him. The fish proves to be no ordinary one, especially when the bookish lad turns on his tape player. As the otherwise empty bus speeds through the rain, will our worm, armed only with his umbrella, survive? Is he a quick enough learner? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fantastic!
27 November 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I had never heard of Chris Jones, before i got to watch that short animated story, and now after watching the Passenger, which he completely produced on his own through years of hard work and polishing (so i heard... Wow!), i am only waiting to see what he will pull out of his sleeve on the next one, hopefully someone will grant him a full team to make a longer one... cause 6 minutes of this is just not enough!! Indeed both scary and funny at the same time, storyline is simple and catchy, I had a blast.... sorry, "we" had a blast as ordered the DVD right after the first screening.

Great freakin short, and produced alone, Chris , you making a lot of people look bad, and a lot more very jealous ;) Adriano
