    Best CG Shorts

    I've seen a few animated shorts over the years, but not nearly as many as I'd like to. What are your favorites or what are some you'd suggest seeing?

    Currently, the best CG short I've ever seen is one from Poland called Fallen Art. A little weird but exceptionally done. Characters were even created with LW.

    My personal fave is

    Fifty Percent Grey by Ruari Robinson... VERY nice style and superb sound design and animation, topped off with such a simple but thought provoking storyline. Shame it didn't beat "For the Birds" at Oscar time, in my opinion it should have.

    Whoops, forgot to post the link...

    lardbros, thanks for your suggestion. I saw that film back in '03 and haven't, for the life of me, been able to recall its name. I'm thrilled to know the name and where to locate it. Many thanks indeed.

    Those Blur films are terrific!

    No probs at all. Glad i could help someone! Nothing more annoying than having seen a brilliant short film and not knowing what it was!

    Agreed, Blur is amazing!

    There's another favorite of mine that I've simply not been able to find anywhere in recent years: Maaz, by Christian Volckman. A French film, it's a combination of live action, weird CG animation, and some odd music. Almost dance like in it's qualities, but harkens to stage work as well.

    Cool thread, I'll be checking these other posts out tonight! Thanks everyone!

    For the birds, I can remember being at the Electronic Theater at SIGGRAPH and all the people around screaming and laughing.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Tried another download and all is fine. Must've gotten corupted somehow the first time.
