Watch Inside Out, Minus the ‘Inside’


Inside Out: Outside Edition from Jordan Hanzon on Vimeo.

Pixar’s Inside Out became a hit with kids and parents alike last summer because of its attempt to understand the inner workings of a child's mind. The movie tells the story of an 11-year-old girl named Riley and the challenges she faces when her family moves from Minnesota to San Francisco. The bulk of the film's narrative unfolds in Riley’s mind, where her emotions—Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust—are conceptualized as individual characters.

Inside Out follows two parallel storylines, but what would the animated film look like if it only focused on the outside world? University of Utah film student Jordan Hanzon attempted to find out. At the request of Reddit user rickroy37, Hanzon created Inside Out: Outside Edition, a supercut of the movie that features only Riley’s real-world scenes, editing out any insights from her inner emotions.

Although there are a couple of rough transitions, the 15-minute video plays out surprisingly well and works as a smart short film. It’s only a matter of time before some inspired soul puts together “The Inside Edition.” C’mon Internet, we’re waiting!
