Very short but very well done.
7 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Adam Pesapane (also known as 'PES') has created several very strange short animated films. I say strange because instead of using drawings, he uses everyday objects and animates them using stop-motion or similar means (such as skipping frames) to make the things appear to be moving or alive. In his most famous short, "Roof Sex", two stuffed chairs have sex--complete with sound effects from what appears to be a couple of people actually having very athletic sex! Here in "Western Spaghetti", a VERY simple idea (someone making a pot of spaghetti) is accomplished using everything BUT the ingredients from spaghetti--such as candy corn, foil, a Rubix Cube, pickup sticks, yarn and many other mundane objects. It's all VERY clever and exceptionally well done--but also way too short--so short you are left wanting more. Still, it is very good and worth your time if you, too, love animated shorts.
