A very enjoyable short, specially for a John Lennon fan:

I MET THE WALRUS (2008) by Josh Raskin

Description: In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrator James Braithwaite have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon's boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short.

I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying this thread! I absolutely love short films, and short stories as well, there's something about them and the drilling way in which a message has to be conveyed in such a short period of time that I find very captivating.

I especially love I Met the Walrus, which you just posted. Had never seen that before; a very interesting way of utilising the recorded interview.

I will try to post some of my favourite short films as I come across them/ re-remember them!

This is my favorite thing I've stumbled across on youtube. Now Cameron Diaz is going to come along and ruin it for me (though they claim there's no intentional similarity).

At the beginning I was just truly annoyed by this man even "thinking" of pushing the button. At the end, well it all makes sense. I really liked it.

Ah! Dark Hearts Productions - they went to my uni! I remember watching this when they brought it out... it's fantastic, I love it too.

It's been a long time since I last posted one of my favourite videos:

Today's share goes to:

AND THEN THERE WAS BOWIE by Will Kresch

Stumbled on it when searching short-movies by Terry Gilliam. A great surreal stop-motion animation. Not really much is understood, you can just explain it the way you want ... I don't want to spoil the fun

Here you go:



Enjoy!

An animation this time, from one of my favourite animation creators, Alexander Petrov. From only handmade oil paintings merged together to create this breathtaking new take on Ernest Hemingway's classic The old man and the sea. A magical experience.

Enjoy.

OLD MAN AND THE SEA (2008) by Alexander Petrov

I love Petrov. His art is mesmerizing. I have all of it on DVD.

More amazing animation, La Maison en petits cubes, the Oscar winner for best short feature for 2009, one of the most poignant films I've seen:
Part 1

Part 2

Another short movie I stumbled upon by pure chance...

The hedgehog in the mist, a classic Russian animated short film from 1975. Based on a story by Sergei Kozlov, directed by Yuri Norstein. In 2003, "Hedgehog in the mist" won the "no.1 Animated film of all time" at "The Best 150 animations of all time in Japan and Worldwide " contest in Tokyo, Japan.

THE HEDGEHOG IN THE MIST (1975) by Yuri Norstein



Such a great short, so beautifully done. Subtly surreal, very magical and innocent. Typical of Russian animation.
Enjoy.
