More Shorts to Consider

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

I am not always a huge fan of claymation, but Allison Schulnik‘s short Eager is stunning. Beautiful imagery, haunting music and thought provoking visuals make this a lovely way to spend 8 1/2 minutes.

Screening in Animated Shorts:

⋆ Saturday, March 8
11:00AM – 12:21PM

Rollins Theatre @ The Long Center

* Sunday, March 9
2:00PM – 3:21PM

Wednesday, March 12
7:00PM – 8:21PM
Vimeo Theater

Thursday, March 13

Also in Animated Shorts: Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 2-Time. If you are a fan of twisted, dark humour, this will appeal to you. In Part II of what I hope will become a long series, Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling gives us a glimpse into the abyss. Check it out-it’s catchy!
And in Midnight Shorts:
Kids and Explosions: Swear Words.  I love this short for many reasons, mostly because it has the potential to make so many people angry. It is from France. It is a statement on American culture. It is almost spot on. I just wish it was a little longer. Well done, Thomas Vernay and Yann Wallaert!

3 Animated Shorts to Consider

Friday, February 14th, 2014

If you are a Shorts person, like I am, you do not need me to convince you to go. Even though I have been watching Shorts seriously for possibly a decade, I am a child of Hanna-Barbera, so it still boggles my mind what animation can do and be. If you are new to watching Animated Shorts-keep your mind open and you won’t be disappointed.

THE Construction of ANSTALT3000

Director: Helmut Munz

While I am not sure of ANSTALT3000’s true purpose, I am very charmed by the creatures who are trying to explain it to me.

Coda 

Director Alan Holly

I hope this is what Death is like-benevolent, tolerant, strong.

Through the Hawthorn 

Directors:  Anna Benner, Pia Borg, Gemma Burditt

A triptych presentation of mental illness as perceived by a mother, her son and his doctor.
