A short pencil animation by Peter Whitaker of the Cleveland Cine Club in which a man seated at a desk uses fly spray to kill a fly that is sitting on his head and ends up killing himself.

Title: Fly

The film begins with a pencil drawing of a sad looking man sitting at a desk. His triangular shaped nose begins to shake. His left arm swipes across his face and his eyes move from side to side.

On the top of the man’s head a fly drills a hole into the mans skull. The man swats the fly but it escapes.

The fly, now with a long and sharp looking proboscis, dives through the clouds towards the man’s head. He takes out an aerosol can with a skull and crossbones on the front and sprays his head. The film ends with him falling down dead.
