Project Main Details

For Anyone Who Has Suffered An Existential Crisis 
This is a thesis animation. Jones is a young adult with no head who uses a black cube as a temporary replacement and a blank slate.With the help of his friend Chip, a college student with a featureless round head, Jones begins to look for other possible heads. However each object fails and Jones becomes dejected and frustrated. Chip is there to comfort his friend, reminding him that they can continue the search and that for now, at least they fit together.

Chip is a college freshman from California, but doesn't have a distinct accent. He speaks precisely, focusing on his choice of words, but he's not very confident. He's rather self-conscious and is trying to find his place in the world, just like his friend Jones.

Script Details

(Note: Because Jones does not actually have a head, he is mute. Chip has a featureless head, but can speak nonetheless.
In an alternate script, their roles are reversed. Chip is looking for something to fill the peculiar square shaped gap in his chest. Nothing has worked thus far.)

A pair of shoes flings into the couch, followed by Chip throwing himself beside the shoes. To his left, Jones startles from reading his book. 

CHIP: The shoes don't fit! Of course they don't fit! I'm not even that good at running, why would the shoes fit!?

Jones watches Chip on his rant.

CHIP (cont.): Maybe it's not that the shoes don't fit. Maybe it's me that doesn't fit.

All the while, Jones looks from Chip's face to the gap in his chest. Jones shoves his obsidian cube head into Chip's side, cutting Chip off from his rant.

CHIP: What?

Jones nudges the cube closer to Chip's chest.

CHIP(flustered): I can't do that, Jones. Thanks, but no thanks.Jones sags a bit, but slowly holds his head up to Chip once again.

CHIP (quietly): But what if it doesn't fit?

Jones looks over Chip's shoulder to see the discarded, dusty flour bag on the kitchen counter, the rubik's cube sitting on the shelf by the front door, and the light bulb and motherboard on the coffee table before him.

Jones looks back at Chip, and gently places the head into Chip's hands.Chip lifts up the head hesitantly, looking up at Jones before continuing. The block taps against the edges of the gap. It doesn't fit.

Chip carefully puts the block down next to him before slowly getting up.

CHIP (softly): I told you it wouldn't work.Jones grabs Chip's hand before he moves too far. He doesn't tug, just holds it. Chip turns to look at Jones, then looks at their hands. He moves to sit back down. Jones threads their fingers together, signing to Chip "Understand?" Chip nods slowly.

CHIP: We fit. We fit.
