An animation Community
A word of warning before you proceed. Not all of these videos will be suitable for young children.

Its been a few months since I posted A Big Bundle of Animated Shorts so I thought now would be a good time to post a second bundle to brighten up someones day.

Up first is Wayne the Stegosaurus.
The animation isn't revolutionary, the protagonist doesn't have any dialogue and there is no plot.....BUT, its funny, cute and gives me a warm feeling inside ;-)

Next is The Legend of the Flying Tomato

A short animation about overcoming obstacles and finding your inner strength

(via Aurry )



The Terrible Thing of Alpha-9! is a fun short was a SVA graduation film from 2009 - and reminds me of a pet I had when I was younger

(via jake armstrong )



Changing tone totally, Tsume is a twisted horror-ish short

(via TOPLESS)



A-Hole In Time is all about...an A-Hole traveling in time (they really nailed it with the title ;-) )

Chair of Pollet looks like a short from Studio Ghibli - because the guy who made it used to work for them.

To display the contrast of styles you can find in animation, Legacy is a slick CGI alien short

Another CGI short that reminds me of the shorts Pixar has made, Pinnipèdes is about a little bird annoying to elephant seals

Dark Noir combines 2D and 3D in stunning effect.
But the background to this animation could be considered its most interesting part :

"Dark Noir, a co-created animated short film by Rafael Grampá, Absolut and Facebook fans worldwide.
The ambitious challenge invited people around the world to unleash their imaginations and transform their ideas into an animated film. During a live interactive three-week period, on Facebook/Absolut, Grampá encouraged consumers to take part and influence the action and storyline as he wrote it. To help him transform his 2D characters and script into 3D, Grampá teamed up with Red Knuckles animation studio.
Grampá, Rick Thiele and Mario Ucci and their team of animators then transformed the crowd-sourced suggestions into an animated short film which premiered at MADE Berlin March 2014."

And finally.
Francis is a short horror animation, based on a short story that first debuted on the radio program This American Life.

I think that my fave of those was probably Tsume, but Chair of Polley was great too. They were all interesting. Thanks GC.

Chair of Polley really felt like something Studio Ghibli would do.
Have you seen any of their stuff?

I've seen Princess Mononoke, which was excellent, and I think I've got Spirited Away on my DVR, I've seen bits of quite a few of their films, Film4 show quite a few on a regular bases, I'm going to keep an eye out for more.

Other than Spirited Away, Porco Rosso and Howls are worth watching

I saw some of Totoro but it had already started so I'm waiting for it to be on again. I'm keeping an eye out for Howls Moving Castle too. Are there any others you recommend?

Thnaks for the videos!
-Wayne is sweet
-A-hole yes,absolutely ;basic paradox but funny
-Chair of Polley :I like that has no explanation for it ,just magic or power of imagination.Also a bittersweet tone like TOY Story but Japanese coming of age tale.
PINNIPEDES is like slapstick elephant seals' comedy.
I liked Francis.I 'd love to read or heard the short story on the radio.
Tsume: fear and guilt are poweful emotions.
Poor Alpha 9 none of their toys last.
