Snowball Studios’ Round 6 is actually two stories in one: it’s a trailer for a video game called Fragball (think gladiator football meets Army of Two) which was invented for the sci-fi short film.
We normally wouldn’t give a hoot about CG-animated owls if it weren’t for Legend of the Guardians’ epic pedigree; in theaters 9/24/10, it’s directed by Zack Snyder of 300 fame.
Even if the philosophical overtones float over your head, Alex Glawion’s In-Between Ends is easily worth watching if only to soak up the surreal animations and fantastic sound effects.
HISHE.com gives us a taste of how Star Trek should have ended; if fans thought the lens flares were a bit on the bright side, just wait until they see what happens on the dark side.
Created with Adobe’s Creative Suite, Ghislain Avrillon’s Galileo is fantastically analog in style for such a digital piece; it was traditionally animated frame-by-frame using Flash.
Sure, it’s geared towards kids, but the Academy Award-nominated The Secret of Kells wins us over with its fantastic animation style and imaginative Celtic storyline. Thanks, Thorir!
Henrik SÃ¸nniksen’s Vegeterrible gives us a terrifying glimpse into the inner workings of a fridge; this deliciously animated short turns rotten food decay into an epic battle for survival.
As promised, Toy Story 3’s second trailer is now up: while we get a better idea of the plot, we’re loving Pixar’s slightly risquÃ© sense of humor–nice ascots and lincoln logs, anyone?
Death metal band Madder Mortem’s video for Where Dream & Day Collide is a sci-fi mashup that’s too good to pass up; it’s a delicious blend of steampunk, fantasy, Avatar, and The Matrix.
NSFW: It’s no secret we live in a world saturated by brands, but Logorama takes this to its logo-gical extremes; the animated short film won Kodak’s Discovery Prize at Cannes.
Netherland-based il Luster’s Pivot is an unusual short film that does an about-face from more complex animations; it instead opts for a minimalist (yet stunning) low poly-count style.
Left 4 Dead fans, eat your hearts (and brains) out: A.D. is a CG animated zombie flick with a jaw-dropping, bad-ass style we can’t get enough of; it’s directed by Ben Hibon of Codehunters fame.
Buy the one 1978 animated film to rule them all with Lord of the Rings: Remastered Deluxe Edition; it includes remastered audio and video plus a 30 minute interview with director Ralph Bakshi.
Super Street Fighter IV has a peculiar animated style for its trailers, but this Juri trailer is actually animated anime-style; it’s available with the game in Japan, but no word on a US release.
All is fair in love and war, but ninjas often have a hard time telling the two apart: Daniel Klug’s Les Dangereux shows that assassins can be amorous–as long as they don’t get killed first.
Illustrated by VFS student Marco Carmona, Dance! is a simple film with a literally moving message that you’ll hear loud and clear: dance, dance against the dying of the light.

Muzorama was created in six weeks and based on the work of illustrator Jean-Philippe Masson; it’s a surreal animated short film that literally has us losing our heads over the details.

If you’re not a fan of Chucky it’s best that you skip Alma; this beautifully rendered CG short film by Rodrigo Blaas is a cautionary tale about nosy children and creepy-looking dolls.
Finished in 2006 but only now fully viewable, Chris Jones’ The Passenger is the result of eight years of hard work; the animated short can also be purchased on DVD. Thanks, Andrew!
