SUNDANCE - ANIMATIONS 1

Sundance is considered to be one of the very top short film festivals, and is perhaps even more varied than Cannes when handing out its short awards.


Edmond by Nina Gantz (2015) (UK) (8m)

Edmond is a stop-motion animation about a man who has suffered with a life-long affliction: cannibalism. We first meet him contemplating suicide at the edge of a lake before sliding back through time to witness individual moments when his craving for human flesh has taken over, revealing that he was a cannibal even before he was born. How is that possible? Watch this BAFTA winning short film to find out!

Yearbook by Bernardo Britto (2014) (USA) (11m)

Yearbook is a comic animation written and directed by American filmmaker Bernardo Britto. Although comical, Yearbook has a deep heart, questioning what we value as noteworthy.

It seems there has been a chicken living and going about his business in New York for many years. Orchard mainly works on television spots, which is perhaps why he can turn his hand to various styles.


Bats

8 Bits by Valere Amirault et al (2010) (6m) (France)

8 Bits begins as a glossy computer animation where a computer game "boss" is toasting his successful capture of a woman with special powers. However, someone has come to ruin the party and, with the help of the captive, the graphics. When the fight breaks out, old 2D graphics momentarily takeover before the boss demands the "end of level" battle take place in the 3D world. However, it proves to be a temporary rest bite...
