    Sunbeam is a 30-second character animation commercial produced by Rhythm & Hues, Inc. for Chiat/Day in Los Angeles. It is the light-hearted story of a new kid on the block introduced to a Memphis-style world of soon-to-be-obsolete kitchen appliances. Sunbeam is the product of new software that allows Rhythm & Hues to do “soft-object animation” such as squash-and-stretch as easily as the animation of solid objects. We are now applying the principles of traditional cel animation to create “the illusion of life.”
