From drowsy ducklings to kids fast asleep in the backseat, a short compilation by New York-based filmmaker Daniel Mercadante (previously) gathers an adorable mix of animals and humans who are too tired to keep their eyes open. “Naps” catches tiny kittens nodding off and babies in the midst of dreamy slumbers and is a follow-up to “Yawns,” a similarly soporific compilation. Mercadante said his motivation for assembling the clips is simply “because we could all use a good nap from time to time.” Head to Vimeo and Instagram for more of the filmmaker’s collection-based projects.
