Archives For Short Films

I’m trying out a new type of posting.

I found this commercial for Rede Telecine [1], a 2min. short done by Rio de Janeiro-based animation studio BEELD.motion for the campaign Vá ao Cinema (Go to the Cinema).

Titled O Homem que Nunca Tinha Ido ao Cinema (The Man Who Had Never Been to the Cinema), the short tells the story of a bitter man who dreads movie theaters because he doesn’t understand them… until he does.

You can check out BEELD’s concepts and storyboards here.

Who remembers those days when you were in class not paying attention, doodling on your notebook?

Also known by its French original title, Le Silence sous l’écorce. The animated short directed by Joanna Lurie follows two… little beings (?) who wake up as it begins snowing.

The short was one of the few shortlisted for the Best Animated Short Oscar nominations, but it missed out on it just like Sensology.

This style is challenging my eye to figured 3d, 2d and mixed media.

There’s also a short making-of the short.

A mystery colorful version of a Film Noir that meets Pythagora Switch (1).

To be honest, this short could easily have gotten an Oscar nod… dunno if it was eligible this year, though. Maybe next time? It’s definitely stylish, and if it holds clues… worth repeat viewings xD

The film contains 16 hidden messages that hold clues to the characters’ secrets. Eight are fairly easy requiring only a close eye. Six are moderately difficult using various encryption methods. Two are extremely difficult requiring a genius mind to decrypt.

Wow, amazing AMAZING stuff by Michel Gagné (some animation in Ratatouille and ALl Dogs Go to Heaven) in Sensology – shortlisted in the list of 10 animated shorts for the Oscar. It needs to be between the nominees.

And if it wins? Woah, does that mean the gap between animation and motion graphics will be even more blurred? Up until now, I haven’t seen any “motion graphic” piece win. They nominated I Met the Walrus, but it lost. I think that’s the closest nominee I’ve seen that looks more like a motion graphic piece, than an animated short.

Best viewed in HD~

Always amazing animation stuff coming from Canada, and no – I’m not being biased ;P
