Haven't been posting much of what's happening with me (lazy I guess |D), I decided to make this list of all the animation shorts I've seen and enjoyed and want to share with you guys. I expand whenever I need to cover up a previous journal lol.


:bulletred: Added today 
(SM |Stop Animation)
(2D) (3D) 


The Backwater Gospel (3D) As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die. Not safe for innocent kids.

Big Bang Boom (SM) Evolution done through graffiti art and even the occasional object. 

The Cat Piano  Stylistic slick anthromorphic cats in a city of music terrorized by a mad man, all set to a lovely beat poem narration.

Dans le cochon tout est bon (SM) In the pig, everything is good... except the cry.

Death buy Lemonade  Short but hilarious cartoon about a little girl and The Reaper man himself.

Deathinger The children of soul reapers come to death school to learn to reap soul, but old hooded sickle Reaper's kid is well...a little different from the other kids.

Father and Daughter  A 2d animation with this wonderful, sometimes melancholic soundtrack.

Fresh Guacamole (SM)Stop motion animation on how to made guacamole. To start off you need some fresh grenades....

Harvey Crumpet (SM) Clay Animation about the life of Harvey Crumpet, narrated by Geoffrey Rush. 

How to Cope with Death  What happens when an angel of death visits an old lady.

I'm a Monster (2D) Dad readies his family to a family outing. Nothing out of the ordinary except for one little thing...

Luminaris (SM) It's a live action stop-motion animation that involves chewing glass beads into light bulbs.

The Maker (SM) by Christopher Kezelos A stop motion animation about 'a strange creature racing against time to make the most important and beautiful creation of his life.'

The Mysterious Exploration of Jasper Morello  A 3d passing off as a 2d shadow animation, it tells off well...title says it all really.

Nine  (3D) The original short film by Shane Acker (for his masters in UCLA), which in turn spawned the Full length feature Tim Burton produced.

The Old Man and the Sea Part 1… Part 2… Alexander Petrov makes this 20 minute animation with oil paintings. Hell yes, every freaking frame was made with oil paints. Do look for his other works like 'The Cow' and 'The Mermaid'

One Day 2D animation about a man constantly in travel and trying to find a place to call his own.

One Rat Short  3D animation about a Rat and how a bag of cheetos (?) has made a big difference in his life.

Out of Sight (2D) 'Seeing' the world through the 'eyes' of a little girl after she loses her guide dog. 

Poussiere  'Dust' (2D) the story of a dustball in a cabinet.

A Quoi Ca Sert L'amour? 'Perils of Love' (2D) By Cube studio and sung by Edith Piaf, an oldie anim short I saw years ago and still love today.

Rosa (3D) A post-apocalyptic sci-fi 3D film with plant themes and action. Not much of a story here, just an appreciation for a man who worked at this for an entire year. 

Storm  (2D) Official animated movie of Tim Minchin's 9-minute beat poem Storm. Written and performed by Tim Minchin. Directed and animated by DC Turner. 

Sheeped Away  (2D) A Hilarious-y cute short about a farmer who just wants to play with his flock of sheep, except there's that UFO taking them all away...

:bulletred: Steadfast Stanley (2D) a little corgi goes on an epic adventure to reunite with his the midst of a zombie apocalypse.

Thought of You (2D) A visual animated dance choreography to the tune of "World Spins Madly On" by The Weepies.

The TV Show  (2D) Hilarious pop music and the repercussions of different media realities colliding on one another. 

Topi (3D) by Arjun Rihan Based on a family story the animator heard during the 1970s and Partition of India and Pakistan, and how one small act of kindness leads to another.   

Wife of Bath (2D) A film by Joanna Quinn and berylproductions about a raucous and acerbic adaptation of one of Chaucers Canterbury Tales.

Windmills  (3D) Just a gorgeous short film about a little girl who doesn't give up trying to fly despite the odds and the her father's grief with the death of her mother.

Who's afraid of Mr. Greedy? (2D) Scary animation about a man trying to reclaim what was once his from a monstrous being.


:bulletred: Freak of the Week-Freak Kitchen (2D) Made by a former Disney animator. Oh god DAT HAIR.

LOUISE ATTAQUE (2D)- Du monde tout autour MASSIVE ATTACK From all around the world  A teacher of ours showed us this particular video not only for it's catchy rhythm but also for it's walk cycles! :D

:bulletred: Ghost- Mystery Skulls (2D) Wonderful flash animation in sync with the music. And a surprisingly bittersweet reveal.

The 11 Second Club - Want to practice/sharpen those animation skills? There's a monthly contest going on wherein you download a (monthly) random audio clip and make 11 second's worth of animation with it. Can be 3d, 2d, whatever.

A combination of random happenstance, friends and family recommendation and teachers sharing it with us for our animation lessons.

So you've got animation connections just like a massive criminal organization, only peaceful and researching awesome stuff.

I can only imagine the amount of time some of these took to make. Especially the full wall painting project. That's dedication.

Dude, the Cat Piano is one of my favourite short films. Er.... is it too short to be called a film? Whatever, I love it.

I was pretty stoked to see it on this list, now time to check out the others ;D

Harvey Krumpet and The TV Show were my favorite. Harvey was funny as heck. I laughed so much. The TV Show looked cool and the way they made everything run into each other was very cool too.
