The Elephant’s Garden by Felix Colgrave, 2013
The height of surreal, technicolor WTF-ery. Enjoy.
Oru Burus by Supinfocom students, 2012
A small epic. A fairytale about trying to control what is uncontrollable. Nice design.
iDiots by Big Lazy Robot VFX, 2013
A light-hearted satire on our fawning over devices. Looks, moves, and bites almost too convincingly.
Solstice by Lynn Wang and Ed Skudder, 2013
It looks like a trailer, but unfortunately this is all there is. Still rather beautiful.
Enjoy also, some Dog Snack by the same team!
Thanks, Tony Blinco!
Orgesticulanismus by Mathieu Labaye, 2008
Yes! So sick. Amazing articulation, gesticulation, and rhythm. Oft-imitated. I’ve waited a long time for this to be available at high quality. Now I can share one of my favorite animations of the past 10 years! If you are impatient, you may skip to the fun at 3:30, but you have to see this!
Leaving Home by Joost Lieuwma, 2013
Funny and touching. Economical character development. Reminds me a little of The Cat Came Back.
Coin by Exit 73 Studios, 2013
A nostalgic, non-stop action sequence. Too much fun!
Myosis by Gobelins students, 2013
This one has it all: great sparse design, good character animation and jaw dropping 2D effects and action. These damned French. Why are they so good at animation?
Land by Masanobu Hiraoka, 2013
An ever-folding, ever-exploding 2D effects feast. Amazing!
Little Freak by Edwin Schaap, 2013
Some of the best facial animation and acting I’ve ever seen in an independent short. This is amazing!
Endtrip by Olivier Ballast, Koen de Mol, & Richard Franssen
Travel through the last, hallucinatory stages of heroin-overdosed consciousness in this surreal, nitebrite 3D-animated trip.
Basilisk by Ami Thompson, 2013
A rollicking fun chase scene, so intricately and solidly drawn.
Thanks, Tony Blinco!
Spyfox by Ringling students, 2013
Excellent animation! And stylish like The Incredibles. Enjoy!
Fortune Elephant Dream, by Olivier Lourry and Machine Molle, 2013
I’m unsure what the short is trying to tell me, but man, such animation, such rendering! It’s beautiful.
PostHuman by Humouring the Fates, 2012
Shades of Ghost in the Shell and Akira in this glance into a future dystopia. Intensely violent, but eh… well-animated!
