Address Is Approximate from The Theory on Vimeo.

Google Street View stop motion animation short made as a personal project by director Tom Jenkins.

Story: A lonely desk toy longs for escape from the dark confines of the office, so he takes a cross country road trip to the Pacific Coast in the only way he can — using a toy car and Google Maps Street View.

Music by the wonderfull Cinematic Orchestra (www.cinematicorchestra.com) and the track is Arrival of the Birds – please buy the fantastic album: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/the-crimson-wing-mystery-flamingos/id297787201
