Like a number of his classmates, teenager Joe doesn’t enjoy or excel in an exam environment. An internal monologue expresses his complaints and frustrations with this element of the education system, which suits some students and not others. Using an analogy of asking six different animals to climb a tree, Joe demonstrates that a one-size-fits-all approach may not be the best or fairest method of assessing the talents and potential of future generations. This short film is a hybrid of live-action and animation, using a poetry structure in the voiceover, and is useful for starting conversations around the pertinent topic of exams.
