Four short films

World Builder is a blended live action/CGI film by director Bruce Branit. It took one day of filming and two years of post-production work to create this breathtaking work, which details an epic act of creation: in a futuristic holographic environment, a single man builds a fully-realized digital world from the ground up, using a suite of gestural Minority-Report-esqe development tools that should make any designer weep. A labor of love, in more ways than one.

9 is a short computer-animated film by Shane Acker in which a race of diminutive sack-creatures scavenge in the ruins of a post-apocalyptic world and try to evade their greatest enemy, a ruthless mechanical predator. It's an intriguing, well-realized world, and there are plans to expand the concept into a full-length feature.

Please Say Something is a mind-blowing short film by animator David O'Reilly. Disjointed and dreamlike, it tells the story of the stormy relationship between a cat and mouse couple. In the future. Amazing.

Via A near life experience.

Maestro is a charming CGI entry in the Portable Film Festival by Hungarian director Géza M. Tóth.

Five minutes before his big performance, the Maestro and his persistent mechanical assistant are in preparation mode. As the clock ticks, life at the top is not all it seems.

I have only watched the first one so far, but it's nice. I was kinda sad when the Italian village disappeared and mooned about on some expat Italian picture blogs to make myself feel better. I love the graphic design tools in it!

Great animations combined with excellent story lines! I'm always blown away when the two come together like this. :o)
