Oscars 2009! Animated Shorts

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Congratulations to all nominees, it’s a great year for animated shorts. I could and perhaps should, write a separate post on each of them.

Watch clips here

LA MAISON EN PETITS CUBES : dir Kunio Kato : In a world gradually flooding with water, an old man adapts to changing circumstances and looks back on his life.
LAVATORY – LOVESTORY : dir Konstantin Bronzit : A lonely lavatory attendant finds a bouquet of flowers in her tip jar.
OKTAPODI : dir Emud Mokhberi and Thierry Marchand : An octopus fights to keep his beloved out of the cooking pot.
PRESTO : dir Doug Sweetland : A carrot triggers a war of wits between a magician and his hungry bunny.
THIS WAY UP : dir Alan Smith and Adam Foulkes : A series of misfortunes befalls a pair of undertakers on their way to the cemetery.

Every year Animation World News takes the shorts nominees on a tour of the major studios, showing their films and meeting other animators. It’s all chronicled here.

Watch the Oscars on Feb 22nd 5pm (Pacific Time)
