Everybody wants to rule the world. At least according to Tears for Fears.
Today’s animated short introduces us to a little alien named Frankie. He’s on a mission to conquer the galaxy, one planet at a time. This 3D animation is pretty impressive. The story is funny, albeit a little crass in the end (no pun intended).
The film was written and directed by San Charoenchai and is already lining up the awards, including,
- 2012 Red Stick International Animation Festival Official Selection
- 2012 Seattle International Film Festival Official Selection
- 2012 LES Film Festival Official Selection
Enjoy – and have a great Canada Day long weekend!
Great illustration style and the perfect voice over. Today’s animated short film is a true gem, based on the original story written and illustrated by Svjetlan Junaković.
Another Friday morning is upon us. And with that, I present another Friday Morning Movie for your viewing pleasure.
Today’s flick is dark and twisted, just how I like them. It’s won a fistful of awards and was directed by Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman (aka D.A.D.D.Y.) from Dublin. Enjoy!
It’s finally Friday.
I went into my archives to find today’s movie. It’s a fun animation about a Russian Cosmonaut spending New Years Eve in space. Directed and animated by Anton Korolyuk and Artem Bizyaev.
What happens when two eccentric parents buy their little brat a zombie best friend as a birthday present? It’s the question we’ve all been asking ourselves. Now we finally have the answer. My Bloody Lad shows us that unconventional friendship has its benefits… and some serious downsides.
A WARNING: (besides the extreme, well-illustrated yet comedic violence), this film contains a dubstep track. I’m sure you all know my feeling about dubstep – but it actually kind of suits this flick.
This video was produced at Wizzprod°, which has produced a few of my other favourite commercials, including this gem:
And this, which is a similar illustration style to our movie today.
You must check out their Vimeo page. It’s filled with tons more great stuff.
And yes, I totally forgot about the Friday Morning Movie. I think going forward, it will now just be the Friday Movie. Because I am always forgetting to post until the afternoon and don’t do well with imaginary guilt.
I came across the trailer for this short about a year ago. It look really interesting, but couldn’t locate the full version.
Today, when I was looking for my inspiration for the animated short, I thought I would check out the recent winners of the Academy Awards. And hooray! The Lost Thing had won for Best Animated Short. I decided to try to search it out online one more time. And here it is! All fifteen minutes and fifty-four seconds.
The story starts out with a boy finding a lost thing on the beach. And well, you can see for yourself how it ends.
Directed by Andrew Ruhemann and Shaun Tan. Written by Shaun Tan
