Bill Plympton, the King of Indie Animation, teamed with The Napoleon Group, the leading previsualization and commercial test company, to create this distinctive digital short for New York utility Con Edison. The 1:16 short details the economic and environmental advantages of switching from heating oil to natural gas. The candid message is lightened by Plympton’s signature quirky style, an instantly recognizable combination of constantly morphing characters and objects. In Plympton's hands, a shimmering swirl of snowflakes becomes a whirl of dollar bills, a New York City highrise becomes a single-family home and a suburban cul-de-sac becomes a stovetop gas burner. Punctuating the sepia palette are pops of bright blue: a furnace flame, a baseball cap and a hand-drawn version of the Con Edison logo.
