Wobblewheel is a small, award-winning studio that has introduced a new type of animated character to the world. The concentration at Wobblewheel is on stray shopping carts as characters and how they exist and interact with each other in a world without humans. One of the most fascinating aspects of animation is giving life to inanimate objects, so using real carts and having them act and convey emotion is an exciting challenge. Shooting on location creates a desolate, surreal, but somehow familiar world where only carts exist. While sound effects and sometimes human-like noises are used, there is no dialogue, and action and mood are heightened with music. Stray shopping carts are symbols of overconsumption, negligence, and often homelessness, but here they're curious, humorous, colorful, genderless wanderers, exploring freely and picking up some things, so to speak, along the way. While the concept carries deep socio-political undertones, it's an escapist idea, meant to be a break from reality, and suggest a way to look at the world a little differently.
