A Tale of Momentum and Inertia by House Special, 2014
Or… physics and morality. Moves great, looks great. Very satisfying.
The Missing Scarf by Eoin Duffy, 2013
Stylish and deceptively simple in look and premise. The kind of thing I like to see, and dream about…
The Blue Umbrella by Pixar, 2013
Sappy as all get-out, but also gorgeous to look at.
Space Cat Hob by Loic Bramoulle, 2014
Beautifully rendered, beautifully animated. A thrilling chase through an alien forest. One of the top 5 things I’ve seen this year.
FoL’Amor by Gobelins students, 2014
A mid-afternoon folly turns deadly serious. A sumptuous, bouncy bit of silliness.
Meet Meat by Gobelins students, 2014
Gobelins season again! A fun sea-chase.
Thanks, Tony Blinco
This Way Up by Smith & Foulkes & O’Reilly, 2008
The misadventures of two very dedicated pallbearers.
A grand, Oscar-nominated trip.
Cap’n Shmelly by Sacha Goedegebure, 2014
A rude but well-animated story about a man driven mad by… vengeance?
Jinxy Jenkins & Lucky Lou by Michael Bidinger and Michelle Kwon, 2014
Fantastic! A madcap chase thru san francisco that’s packed with appealing motion and design.
Marilyn Myller by Mikey Please, 2014
An amazing, intricate styrofoam replacement stop-motion from the guy who did Eagleman Stag.
Thanks Craig and Craig!
Dip n’ Dance by Hugo Cierzniak, 2013
Kinda silly for my tastes, but the motion and 2D rendering (on top of 3D) are amazing.
Duet by Glen Keane, 2014
A master. Obviously. The solidity and appeal of the drawings is second to none, and the rendering in chalk is impressive. Had to wait for a youtube embed… probably won’t last long…
Poulette’s Chair by Studio Colorido, 2014
Butts by Tyler Hurd, 2014
If this doesn’t cheer you up, your heart is as hard as your ass. Here is this year’s shoo-in winner of the Oscar for Best Animated Short (surely) and a special technical prize for dat jiggle. By my friend, Tyler Hurd. Way to go, buddy!
Tiny Nomad by Toniko Pantoja, 2014
A weighty story for cartoon mice and 6 minutes. So well-drawn!
