Caroline Torres "21 Years in 7 Minutes" (2012)

The best animation website launches its third annual Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival and it's off with a lovely Flash film. Caroline Torres does what a good animator does best, mastering the drawing tablet with the hand sketched look of her 21 Years in 7 Minutes. Take that moment when a child realises that chicken is indeed chicken, that boys aren't all rough, add the expanding chest measurement, smoking on top of a hill, more boys; anyway our girl goes to arts school and meets lots of other boys, girls, passes through the mandatory psychedelia phase and falls for the redhead in the beard.  A student at Rhode Island School of Design, Caroline's film reminds me that things have not changed that much since my day. It also squashes a lot of incident into a short time-frame, briskly encompassing a range of emotions, funny and not so funny, all imaginatively encapsulated.

With smaller craft, it's sometimes possible to partially disassemble them and then rolex masterpiece watches transport them via highway. In these situations, a transport company replica handbags (such as a trucking company) works directly with the space agency to understand the weight and size of the parts that need to be moved. Then the trucking crew works out the logistics of getting each section of the craft to its final destination.
