This endearing animated short about the life-cycle of a cloud and those who come into contact with it is engaging and enjoyable.

In Dakotan North American Indian mythology Takuskanskan was a wind spirit or trickster. He comes across as quite a nice guy here and the impressionistic-looking pastel animation gives Cobley's short a real feeling of movement which makes it easy to imagine yourself being carried along on the wind with the action. She also strikes a neat balance retaining a primal feel despite the film's pretty animation.

Aided by a lilting and uplifting guitar soundtrack by Dirk Markham and Ross Taylor this short and sweet innovative animation leaves you wishing there was more of it.
