Donnie Darko - Animated book cover

// //

If someone ask me "what is this Donnie Darko movie about?" I swear that I don't know how to describe it.

I had the idea to create this motion when I first saw the book's cover, which was published by Darkside Books here in Brazil. I thought "I have to give it some life". And here it is, the result of my experiment.
