  2. Dip n’ Dance by Hugo Cierzniak, 2013

    Kinda silly for my tastes, but the motion and 2D rendering (on top of 3D) are amazing.
    Thanks Alexandre!

  3. 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…

  4. Poulette’s Chair by Studio Colorido, 2014

    A combo coming-of-age plus chase, this appealing short really makes you feel like flying. Same director as Rain Town.

    Thanks Darren!

  7. The Begun of Tigtone by Andrew Koehler, 2014

    Imagine a world where our ideas of valor, adventure, might, and magic are so thoroughly deconstructed, it’s hard to know what the hell is happening… or who cares. Into that world, unbidden, steps a delusional derring-doer who dares to demand a destiny: Tigtone. His Begun is a relentlessly WTF introduction to the brain-bending, genre-crushing madness. The production value is amazing, the moving illustration is gorgeous. Enjoy it now, before it blows up…

    Congratulations to my friend, Andrew, and good luck!

  11. Skhizein by Jeremy Clapin and Dark Prince, 2008

    A long, moody, French animation, but a totally engrossing Kaufman-esque conceit… should have a special resonance with makers of 3D animation and others of us who have a fragile grip on reality.

    From the director of Palmipedarium.

  12. There’s a Man in the Woods by Jacob Streilein, 2014

    Styled like a Nickelodeon cartoon, but subverted with a dark character arc. Great design, a story you never hear.

  13. Palmipedarium by Jérémy Clapin, 2012

    Looks like an animated storybook. Beautifully animated, at that.

  15. The Ballad of Balloon Boy by Henning Koczy, 2014

    Here is some of my own work. It’s not up to the usual quality standards around here, but I hope you will indulge me 1 or 2 self-links a year for when I do something I’m proud of. :)
