Top CG animated shorts you must see
Looking for some inspiration or just fancy dodging work for half an hour? In either case, here are some great short CG films for your delectation
CG shorts are pretty awesome, it must be because in creating them, animators are free to do what they do best: be creative.
Here are some of our favourite classics for you to marvel at. Enjoy!
A typically bonkers and lighthearted French animation created by Romain Segaud and Christel Pougeoise in 2002, with a fabulous score to boot.
Cat Hicks’ graduation animation from Ringling may sport an overly familiar visual style – very Pixar – but also features some superb acting and timing.
More French exuberance. This short contains possibly the best octopus fight ever filmed.
If you haven’t yet seen Chris Landreth’s seminal film, a) why the hell not? and b) watch it now. And if you have it, watch it again and wonder.
Please Say Something
Annecy award winning short, David O’Reilly’s breakneck animation(s) demands concentration and a twisted sense of humour.
There may not be a whole lot of originality in this film by four Supinfocom students, but it shows impressive ambition and artistry.
Fairtytale visuals and a subtle use of lighting enrich this dialogueless student film. It’s just a shame the story isn’t a little stronger.
Bruce Branit, co-creator of the infamous film 405, goes all schmaltzy on us in another live action/effects extravaganza.
Enormous rabbit action in this lengthy short from German artist Egmont Mayer. Is it a metaphor? Or just, y’know, a big rabbit?
Hope you liked them!
