ANIMATED SHORT FILMS - 1

Short animations could have a site all of their own so I include just some
of the very best animations of different genres, including festival winners.


House On Little Cubes by Kunio Katô (2008) (Japan) (12m) *

House On Little Cubes (aka Maison En Petits Cubes & Tsumiki No Ie) by Japenese animator Kunio Kato won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2009. As his town floods, an old man is forced to add levels onto his home in order to stay dry. But when he drops his favorite pipe into the watery levels below, his scuba-diving search for the pipe prompts him to keep on descending and relive scenes from his life. It's a bit of a weepy and could be considered the animated version of The Last 3 Minutes...

House on Little Cubes

Dji. Death Fails by Dmitri Voloshin (2013) (Moldova) (4m) *

The overall winner of the amazingly high quality 7th FILMSshort comptition, the comic animation Dji. Death Fails is as good as Pixar. It was created by the Moldovan studio Simpals. Dji is an unusual manifestation of Death, who does not seem terribly good at his job and suffers from bad luck. All he has to do is to take the soul of a dying trucker, but that seems to be easier said than done!

Dji Death Fails

Cooped by Mike A Smith (2014) (USA) (9m) *

Cooped, a fantastic hand-drawn animation, was selected as the Best Short Animation in the 10th competition. Written and directed by American Mike A Smith, Cooped is a comic animation that tells the story of a poor dog that is stuck inside all day while his master is at work. The hound can see the amazing world of squirrels and tennis balls that exists outisde his place of imprisonment, but is unable to open the door. With his master only ever coming back to sleep, it seems that our canine hero will never get out...

Musafir

Vincent

Vincent by Tim Burton (1982) (US) (6m)

The king of the macabre revealed his hand in this stop-motion animation film - made when he was 23 - in which a young boy dreams of being horror legend Vincent Price. It was not his first short film but it introduced him to the wider film world as a darlky humorous director, which would lead on to his first successful feature film, Beetle Juice. Having Vincent Price narrate this short animation film was probably one of his most salient career moves.
