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

Not only is China conquering Olympic gold, but apparently animation school over there is taking huge leaps compared to what actually was/is — Legend of a Rabbit, I’m looking at you .
Until I ran into this link to YinYueTai on Weibo.
Here comes Zhang Zhe (张喆) — I can tell these Mandarin classes are paying off — whose animation, titled Paper War (纸片战记), is of the mixed media kind and took 9-freaking-months to make at The Animation and Digital Arts School of the Communication University of China (中国传媒大学).
You can check some posts on Peruvian animation~
I found this… seems to be pretty old considering this YouTube upload, but the animation style is still nifty. The Vimeo version doesn’t have a logo and is much MUCH crisper. I don’t know who did the animation though.
I don’t think I’ve been this excited about an animated short for a while~~~ it’s got great style, flow, pizzazz — great for those who love animation, those who love Star Wars… and it’s also very relatable for those people who are familiar with riding on a subway (or any public transportation!).
This short animation, besides being super entertaining with its stylish violence, it’s also part PSA~ teaching you to always give your seat to the elderly!
