Archives For Short Films

I’ve been on a Chulpan Khamatova binge for a while, but since Russian is such a foreign language to me, it seems hard to come by with simple googling since Google Translate doesn’t do so well with the language either. This time, though, I was browsing Khamatova.ru and was looking at the Filmography page and noticed that she had a fairly recent short film.

Titled From Tokyo (Из Токио), this short film also serves as a commercial for Chivas Regal. Directed by Aleksei German Jr., the short follows a Russian businessman on a return flight from Tokyo to Moscow (I suppose), where he’s unable to sleep. When approached by the flight attendant, they begin talking about his reasons to be in Tokyo right after the Tohoku Earthquake and the Tsunami, where he’s rescued a survivor.

Though I really liked the short by the end, even if that might be my Khamatova bias showing~ there were some things that irked me for no reason. One- the dude is a rescuer flying on Business. Two- he refers to Miyagi Prefecture and Sendai City as “a village” because we did not see the Tsunami literally crushing miles and miles of road, bridges, highways, while sweeping tons of cars and other city-related debris.

Having said that~ Yes! Khamatova! I finally learned how to pronounce her name correctly. I was doing it SO wrong. LOL I’m a little embarrassed.

In the style of Comic Book Meets Western, Brazilian-born Edson Oda has a young mercenary hired to kill Death. Outstanding, fresh and very creative.

Someone even uploaded it on YouTube.

Just ran into this amazingness done by Kooree Kim, animation student debuting at the 3rd Cartoon Brew Student Animation Festival. Not many days left to vote, though. Still worth checking out all the other shorts.

This, you have to admit, is pretty darn good-looking.

Psyop is doing a series — in all honesty, it’s only three webisodes — as prequel to a video game, and decided to do the animation by hand with some 3D enhancements.

Back in 2009, a group of French animation students did a short taking on Peruvian culture (and doing it better). This year, a fresh new batch of French animation students are taking on China with their short, A Fox Tale.

Animal spirits are mischievous little creatures… and humans can be idiots. xD
