‘Cruising’, An Animated Short About Being an Introvert on a Cruise Ship

In “Cruising,” Los Angeles animator Zachary Zezima turns the story of a young man stuck on a cruise ship into a violently colorful and cacophonous animation exploring the fallout of “forced fun.” The piece takes a dark turn, but things eventually work out in the end.

His initial inability to accept his environment drives him to suicidal fantasy, where he learns to cope with his stressors, discomfort and anxieties.
