That the universe is a pretty big place is the message Philip Day shows us through some good quality animation. From speeding through space to whipping through a library, the idea of microcosms and macrocosms is well illustrated – although, why (and this doesn't just apply to Mr Day) do shots of space always seem to be accompanied by wind sound effects?

Day’s animation is slick and engaging and though the central idea is slight – and not particularly new – he explores it cleverly and with an independent vision.

Special mention must be made of the initial shots through the universe, which are incredibly well realised on what, one can only assume, was a pretty tight budget.
