If Disney made more 2D films or shorts like this I it would make me so happy. ‘Wreck-it Ralph’ was a great film, but having ‘Paperman’, one of the most beautiful things Disney has ever produced as the animated short in front. Perfect. If you missed this gem in theaters it’s now on youtube.
If you didn’t catch Pixar’s latest feature Brave in the theaters, you may have missed out on La Luna, Enrico Casarosa’s stellar short about the moon’s custodians: a young boy, his father, and his grandfather. Hit play and let yourself be transported to a magical world where you can sweep up the stars and a child must learn to find his own way.
Hominid is an animated teaser based on the Hominid series of photo composites by Brian Andrews. The photographic series has been exhibited internationally, including at SIGGRAPH, in the Hong Kong Exhibition Center, and at numerous galleries and museums.
Animated Short of the Day:Good Books, an online book retailer that donates all its proceeds to Oxfam, recently collaborated with NYC-based creative studios Buck and Antfood to create this trippy promo based on the works of Franz Kafka and Hunter S. Thompson.
In a disclaimer, the company notes that the video is not endorsed by either estates, but they “humbly suggest” Thompson would have liked it. Considering there is enough contact high in this short to kill a wild horse, I’d say they’re probably right.
