"A Girl Named Elastika" makes clever use of common office supplies.

A new stop-motion short film by Guillaume Blanchet proves that all you need to be really creative are some basic office supplies. A Girl Named Elastica tells the story of a wide-eyed girl who leaves home to travel the world and experience all the adventures it has to offer.

All of the action takes place on a small cork board, which was animated by Blanchet using nothing more than ingeniously placed rubber bands and thumbtacks. The three-and-a-half minute clip has already won numerous prizes, and has been selected by more than 50 film festivals around the world since it's release.
