Fubar

(NSFW: Language) A Zack Snyderesque motion comic featuring cats vs. dogs but with a very human issue. Could use a more imaginative and less didactic script, but still worth watching.

The Schwarzenegger Trilogy

Second Hand

Second Hand

A tale of two extremes, embodied by the title, presented in a unique animated style and filled with memorable scenes. Clear in its message yet not overwhelming or too critical.

A Short Film About Skydiving

A Short Film About Skydiving

Ryan Buller’s spirited 3 minute film that chronicles a weekend of skydiving from the perspective of the skydiver is a great combination of adrenaline rush and sheer fun. It’s got a goofy soundtrack too.

Think Tank

Think Tank

(NSFW: Language) It’s a meeting of the mind in this funny but moralizing short written and directed by Peter Calloway and starring Matthew Rhys as the separate and conflicting aspects of a guy’s brain.

500 People, 100 Seconds

500 People, 100 Seconds

The Tale Of Mr. Rêvus

Marius Herzog created this beautiful, imaginative short film about dreams as his graduation project, doing all the writing, design, modeling, rigging, animation, rendering and compositing by himself.

Jurassic Park Infographics

Young Master 4: Stone and Iron

Young Master 4: Stone and Iron

A proto-animated short film by Alexey Minchenok. Young Master 4: Stone and Iron presents the classic master-student story with clever and sparing use of drawings, music and sound effects.

Storm Origins

Storm Origins

(NSFW: Lyrics) Freerunning gets as much plot as it can in this acrobatic short film. Ok, so jumping off of walls and rails isn’t really a story, but it’s still way cool – especially on fire. (Thanks, Ian!)

Surreality

Surreality

We’re truly grateful for the conveniences of modern urban life. But it does leave us disconnected and overwhelmed sometimes, as shown in this short film directed by Falko Tilgner.

In the Fall

In the Fall

There is nothing new or innovative in this animated short by Steve Cutts, from the first shot to the concept itself. But the bittersweet introspection that it induces in the viewer makes it special.

Astonish Me

Astonish Me

The WWF (no, not that WWF) exposes us to some unusual and extraordinary recently discovered species, encouraging us to preserve our planet and habitats so we still might discover more.

Consoul

Consoul

Animator Lasse Gjertsen tells the story of one man’s journey through life, told in the pixelated style of retro video games. Pay careful attention to the score and health indicators throughout.

Tiny Chainsaw

Tiny Chainsaw

The idea of carrying around a tiny chainsaw in your pocket seems like it’s probably not the smartest thing you could do. Rather Good Stuff and animator Ross Butter show us exactly why.

Eyrie

Eyrie

A young boy works diligently to protect his sheep from a predator in this poetic short animated film by David Wolter, a recent Dreamworks hire. Stick around for the surprising twist ending.

Ten for Grandpa

Ten for Grandpa

Doug has ten questions for the infamous David Karr, the alleged KGB mole, also his grandpa. A manifestation of the myths and disconnected trivia that we as kids had of our elders.

Over Time

Over Time

At once bizarre, funny and touching, Over Time is about a group of puppets trying to cope with their creator’s passing. Directed by Oury Atlan, Thibaut Berland and Damien Ferrié.

Extn. 21

Extn. 21

A surreal mix of stop-motion animation composited with a live actor, Lizzie Oxby’s engrossing, award-winning short film was originally released in 2003, but you can catch the entire thing online right now.

Defective Detective

Defective Detective

An imaginative mind can be a potent weapon for a sleuth, but this man takes it too far. He’s more Johnny English than Sherlock Holmes. A funny little film by Avner Geller and Stevie Lewis.

Running on Empty

Running on Empty

With all of the attention on this weekend’s Hwy. 405 “Carmageddon” road closure, it’s only right to see what Los Angeles might look like without cars. It’s a little eerie, but a welcome change from the norm.

Who’s Afraid of Mr Greedy?

Who’s Afraid of Mr Greedy?

Mr. Greedy is one mean mofo. He eats little kids for breakfast and collects their heads. Yeesh. But a little decapitation doesn’t stop us from enjoying this brilliantly animated, if a little dark, short film.
