Pixar’s Inside Out made moviegoers fall in love with the emotions influencing a young girl named Riley. But what would the film look like if we didn’t know — or see  what was going on inside her head? 

Vimeo user and University of Utah film student Jordan Hanzon put together an “Outside Edition” of Inside Out, cutting together only the scenes from outside of Riley’s mind. 

For the film, co-director Peter Doctor was inspired by his daughter Ellie, who he noticed went from being mischievous to quiet and reserved. “[As parents] we were like, ‘Wow, that’s so unlike her, what’s going on her brain?’” he said. “And that’s what lead to the heart of the story — the question of what goes on inside our own minds.”

In a similar fashion, the “Outside Edition” emphasizes the confusion Riley’s parents must have felt during their daughter’s transition. Watch it in the player above.
