OSCAR ANIMATIONS - 2

More Oscar winning short animations.


Paperman

Mr Hublot by Laurent Witz (2013) (France/Lux) (11m) *

Mr Hublot won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2014. It tells the story of the routine obsessed Mr Hublot, who lives in a robotic world. He spends his time alone until he rescues an abandoned robot dog. The only problem is that the dog grows to a huge size and, when he breaks the television, it seems the situation is impossible to continue. Mr Hublot has to make a hard decision. It is a simple story about the love between a man and his dog.


Paperman

Paperman by John Kahrs (2012) (USA) (6m) *

The story for Paperman, fairly reminiscent of the nicely made live-action short Signs, came from Clio Chiang and Kendelle Hoyer and won everyone involved, including Disney, an Oscar. I have to admit I find the generic Disney characteristics somewhat kitsch but this animation is certainly likeable. It follows the story of a man who has a brief encounter with a woman and sees she works in the office block opposite him.... but how to get her attention?


Logorama

Fantastic Flying Books... by Joyce & Oldenburg (2011) (USA) (15m)

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr Morris Lessmore won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2012. There are lots of ideas crammed into this inventive short animation and it is a lovingly crafted animation using a variety of techniques. The idea is that books add colour to your life and it starts with a Wizard of Oz tornado that lands our hero in a book-centric world. Joyce and Oldenburg had already worked together on the 2005 feature film, Robots.


The Lost Thing by Ruhemann & Tan (2010) (Australia/UK) (15m)

The Lost Thing comes from a story book by Shaun Tan, who was heavily involved in the production of this short alongside British producer and animator Andrew Ruhemann. It follows the story of a boy who finds a "lost thing" on the beach - a bit like a large octopus stuck in an even larger teapot, it acts like a puppy. The problem is that it is lost, so the boy takes it home with him. However, this cannot last and the lost thing must be taken and left elsewhere.
