Johnny Kelly's "The Seed"

An excerpt from “The Book of Changes and the Unchanging Truth” by Hua-Ching Ni:

“Long ago, before teachers of any cultural heritage existed, people relied on their own simple minds to develop a system of knowledge and solve the problems in their lives. Living close to nature provided them with their first teacher, great Nature herself. They learned that she provides for, supports and instructs all beings.”

When it comes to studying the laws of nature, you can’t get much more basic than a seed; the topic of Johnny Kelly’s latest animated short in which we follow the magical journey of a single seed. Take a look at the combination of both drawn and paper stop animation!





And if one amazing John Kelly animation wasn't enough for you, here’s another one of his videos titled “Procrastination”.





Amazing videos!! If you are interested in finding more information on the previously mentioned mind altering book, click here!
