Siggraph 2012 announces the Computer Animation Festival’s Best in Show, Jury Award, Best Student Project, and Well Told Fable Prize recipients. Watch the animated shorts here and discover how some of them were created…
CG short animated films are among our favourite things to see created using 3D software. We love learning about how certain sequences were achieved and getting the technical lowdown.
Unfortunately the festival entry restrictions are such that animators can’t show their work online in full, so you’ll have to revisit us when we have the lowdown on the animated shorts up online some time next year!
As you can see, we simply can’t get enough of CG shorts here at 3D World! And here are some more gems that have just been announced as Computer Animation Festival winners.
BEST IN SHOW AWARD
In a boutique in Paris, Louise looks at her reflection in the surrounding mirrors. Tonight, she has a rendezvous with Jules, her fiancé. Suddenly she notices that she’s late, and goes off in great haste to her flat to get ready. Réflexion is a description of women’s concerns about the way they look.

In the vastness of space, a small speck of rock is inhabited by the most peculiar lifeforms: Dark little dots that start to replicate fast and begin to show signs of intelligence. “Globosome“ tells the story of the rise and fall of these little creatures.
Herr Hoppe und der Atommüll
Directed by Jan Lachauer and Thorsten Löffler, Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg; Germany
A barrel of nuclear waste drops into the living room of Herr Hoppe, an average suburban German. He has to get rid of it and does it in his own wacky way.
WELL TOLD FABLE (WTF) PRIZE
Directed by: Romain Borrel, Gaël Falzowski, Benjamin Rabaste, and Vincent Tonelli, Supinfocom Arles; France
In a cured meats deli, a customer starts fantasising about the butcher. She takes us into a clichéd vision of couple-hood, transcribed, for better or for worse, within a universe of pork products. Disgusting but very, very funny!
