Cloudy W/Meatballs #2

Cloudy W/Meatballs #2

If you’re American you’re probably gorging yourself into a stupor this 4th of July, just like this new Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs trailer; this version is even more epic than the first.

Movie Trailer #2: Planet 51

Movie Trailer #2: Planet 51

Trailer #2 for Planet 51 isn’t earth-shattering, but improves on the first trailer by squeezing in more character exposition, examples of 50s-style Americana and cutesy robot sequences.

It’s technically about a future archaeologist who discovers the remains of Hollywood, but StopMo is in reality an homage to movie special effects artists wrapped in a sci-fi story.

Short Film: Water Brain

Created by Guangzhou student Johann Pu, Water Brain is a gorgeous 15 minute short film remarkable not only for its surprisingly moving story, but for its Chinese take on steampunk.

Short Film: Red Rabbit

Short Film: Red Rabbit

We had a rabbit once. It dug holes and crapped everywhere. Red Rabbit isn’t too different, but it does show that the secrets we hide may not be as big as we think they are.

Terrible Thing of Alpha-9

Terrible Thing of Alpha-9

Created by SVA student Jake Armstrong for his thesis, The Terrible Thing of Alpha-9 is a fantastically illustrated sci-fi short about a misunderstood (and ultimately harmless) monster.

Opening: FedCon 2009

Opening: FedCon 2009

No, it’s not from J.J. Abram’s Star Trek–it’s FedCon 2009’s opening video which depicts a “what if” battle with the USS Kelvin, Romulan fighters and a surprise guest. Thanks Luke!

Oceansize (Short Film)

Short Film: Café Serré

Short Film: Café Serré

And they say being a cop is hard: Café Serré is a very short animated film that shows that some police officers can get the job done without lifting a finger. Well, maybe a donut or two.

Music Video: WOOD

Music Video: WOOD

Simon and McBess’ WOOD starts off like an old-time cartoon (and stays monochrome throughout), but the delicious blend of urban graphics and animation style are clearly modern.

Short Film: Masquerade

Short Film: Masquerade

We love the funky cardboard look of Aziz Kocanaoqullari’s Masquerade; set to music by Belgium band Ghinzu, it also makes a poignant statement about workplace behavior.

Let There Be Sound

Let There Be Sound

Like Spore but funkier (if that’s even possible), Let There Be Sound is as gorgeous as it is grotesque; still, any film that simultaneously makes us smile and squirm is worth a watch.

Short Film: The Fly

Short Film: The Fly

Based on a quote by clergyman Norman Vincent Peale, The Fly is an animated film about the power of thought, the value of patience and the need for flypaper. Thanks, Tenshi!

Short Film: Tokyo Mater

Shown before Bolt, Cars’ Tokyo Mater is a 6 min. short film that hilariously spoofs Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift with references to Grendizer and Power Rangers. PS: Donuts FTW!

G.I. Joe: Resolute, Pt. 1

G.I. Joe: Resolute, Pt. 1

Short Trailer: Meet Meline
