What if wild animals ate fast food?

BY JIMMYJAMES · MARCH 4, 2013

Here’s an interesting animated short film looking at if the natural world also chose to indulge in the fatty foods we know (all to well) and love. What if animals ate fast food?  Imagine the lethargic cheetahs chasing down prey, or crocodiles too fat to snap at zebras.  Imagine no more, because Rollin Wild has created this animation short depicting the overweight natural world.

However that’s not what they originally intended.  This is actually a series of shorts about if animals were round. I heard from one of the creators that “They are about inflated animals and were originally made for the ITFS and the FMX.” Their Facebook page doesn’t really make it very clear, but it states ROLLIN’ WILD is a transmedia project brought to life by Flying Stone GbR. Produced as part of the subject area Animation at the Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg.  So I’m not really sure what it’s REALLY about, just that it’s a kick-ass class project.

Recently, some fake versions of this video were floating around (Including on THIS website, sorry guys) asking that very question, “what if wild animals ate fast food?”  Well, this was not the original intention, but it has garnered a lot of attention from the internet (Including on THIS website, sorry guys) and makes an interesting point about the eating habits of people, so I’m keeping it on this site as food related, and not balloon related.

What ever the intentions, whatever the engine that is getting this shared around, I really enjoyed the series and hope they put some more together.

Fast food eating animals rolling around like balls
Someone has made a rather silly but funny video about what would happen if animals ate fast food and got all fat and useless. A very round alligator swims past a flock of flamingos, but can’t manage to attack before his considerable weight pulls him underwater.

Louie Schwartzberg

“We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes.”

At TED 2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World,” which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.”

In this TED Talk, Louie Schwartzberg takes the audience on a journey from the largest objects to the smallest atoms by exploring cinematography in three forms: time-lapse, slow motion, and microscopy.

Time-lapse footage allows us to see those things that are too slow for us to notice on a day-to-day basis such as plants moving, mushrooms blooming, and the planet itself changing. A macro view of these things allows us to see life move in a new way.

Slow motion lets us take note of things too fast for our eyes to pick up such as how birds fly and insects move. In particular, Schwartzberg focuses on the magnificent flying abilities of a dragonfly, which is known as “nature’s best flier” because it can hover, fly backwards, and even fly upside down. You’ve probably noticed dragonflies during the summer exhibiting some their flying prowess, but Schwartzberg’s slow motion footage takes an in-depth look at just how these small insects are able to accomplish something that we could only mimic in helicopters in the 1930’s.

Finally, Schwartzberg takes us to the microscopic world, showing us the beauty of worlds too small for us to take notice of. One particularly interesting point in his talk occurs when the camera zooms in on the ant’s leg to reveal yet another smaller creature living on the ant. We rarely take notice of life smaller than ourselves, our pets, and occasionally the insects that disturb us. It’s fascinating to visualize life so minuscule, yet so vital to our own survival. I found this segment of the talk the most fascinating because of it’s uniqueness. It’s not often that you get a chance to dive into this world.

One form of microscopic life that Schwartzberg doesn’t get a chance to dive into is bacteria, which provide the foundation for life on Earth through a myriad of functions including decomposing biological materials, acting as catalysts inside our bodies, and modulating various other functions. It’s estimated that only 5% of all bacteria is harmful to humans, the majority of which can be taken care of through proper hygiene.
