Das Rad (2003)

Rocks is written and directed by Chris Stenner, Arvid Uibel and Heidi Wittlinger. They used a mixture of stop motion, puppetry, and CGI animation.
Thus short is about the evolution of the mankind through the vision of … two rocks.
The film tracks a hillside from ancient times through the present and into the future, usually moving through time at high speed but occasionally switching to real time and showing the inhabitants and objects in motion in their day-to-day existence.

The stone-people Hew and Kew have seen a lot in their everlasting lives on top of their mountain. Therefore they're only mildly amazed by the ongoings in the valley below, they've got their own little problems to deal with. Mankind is discovering and inventing, instead of just woozeling, and this new behavior starts to threaten Hew's and Kew's stoic peacefullness...
They were imbued with so much personality.
