    Animated Shorts Thread

    Let's talk about animated shorts here, gentlemen. There's something about animated shorts that just fascinates me. The animation quality? The idea? Story? How it's presented? I don't know but whether it's in 2D or 3D doesn't matter as long as the content itself is brilliant to watch. But, I'll keep this intro, err... short.

    So, I'll be posting a few shorts for now. First up: An Anthony F. Schepperd short for Blockhead's The Music Scene


    Full on weird. But I just love how fluid the animations are in this one. With all the weird stuff going on here, it's pretty hard to look away, imo

    Next up: Prelude to Eden by Michel Gagne


    This one's from way back in 1995, traditionally animated. All restored by Gagne to HD. A coupla aliens are fighting for some reason but hey, at least the action is great.

    Now here's one of my personal favourites: Le Royaume

    It's a simple story about a lost king who wanted a castle built by a beaver. Beautifully animated.

    Now for a little eastern animation. Kung Fu Cooking Girls by Jin Roh and Clover Xei (if I'm not mistaken)

    Loving the aesthetics, there. Some ups and downs but still good

    And how could we forget about this one?

    Yeah, it's supposed to be shorter (this video is actually a few episodes combined). Still, this is a reason why Tartakovsky is great, even with Star Wars.

    Well, that's it for now. I'll be back with more to add here, so enjoy the shorts in the meantime

    I like Blockhead, and that clip reminds me of SuperJail with it's hyper weird segue sequences.

    This is the perfect thread to prop up John Kricfalusi's indie cartoon project. He's an animator that gets better with every passing year. A cartoon with no publisher or network is guaranteed to be super gross.

    As soon as I saw the thread title I thought of this. I suspect this was probably an inspiration for a similar, and thoroughly excellent flash short

    I used to have animated shorts, the doctor gave me a cream for it.
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    This has pretty damn awesome animation and general feel. I just wonder how the boy managed to get down there before the girl. (also, this will be all the vids for now, honest!)

    Sup, guys and I'm back. Thanks for the shorts and I was going to post Crater Face but it's already on here. So, I'll just post this one for now

    I find this one depressing. Hard to watch it again since I last watched this 3 years ago

    Not much of a fan of his humour but his art and animation, on the other hand, is what I like most about. I'm not sure how this project would go, though.

    I'm back again, guys and with content. There She Is!! by SamBakZa


    I know, I posted this in another thread but it's a lot more suitable here. There's 5 videos of this one. This one's the second and if you want to know want to more about the whole story about these two, it's best that you watch it from the start. Adorable as heck.
