What Puberty Looks Like

Alexander Gellner takes a tweaked-out, one-minute crash course through puberty in this animated short. “Puberty, the fun and exciting times you had with pimples, uncontrolled new powers, and a thousand things you tried out for the first time,” writes Gellner in his synopsis. “Metamorphosis and change and chaos of becoming a real person are some of the themes that I tried to touch on.” Though I’m fairly certain we were all “real” people before puberty, Gellner’s explanation doesn’t overshadow the manic tempo of the visuals. In reality, however, puberty is far messier than what we see here. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
