A small animated panda enters into a metaphysical journey to rediscover himself. The video, entitled The Enlightenment of Cosmic Panda is co-produced by the German sound studio, Studio Kamp and Brazilian design studio, Le Cube. His cosmic expedition is energized by the candy-colored digital-deft work of design company Mr. Kat & Friends, helmed by Mr. Kat himself, Jaime Álvarez Sobreviela.

The thrilling, miniaturized journey is brought to life with a slick CGI design and a warm flurry of paint streaks. The unifying presence is the Cosmic Panda, who appears in each of the continuous whip-fast vignettes of the animation. One second his image is repurposed to appear as a golden digital god with a Sims floating crystal perched above him, while the next second his face circles the drain to turn into a swirling yin-yang target.

Safe to say, the panda is on it's enlightened journey. Take in a few highlights and full video, below:
