It’s Dana again. As you may or may not know, I’ve been working as an animator for several years now on a variety of different projects. It’s a pretty fun job, which makes the bouts of unemployment and total lack of job security almost worth it. But anyway, this week I thought I’d share some animated shorts by some very talented people. Most of these are rarely seen by the general public, but thankfully sites like YouTube now make them much more accessible.
“Simon’s Cat” by Simon Tofield
This is actually one of a series of shorts. If anyone has a cat I’m sure they can relate to this.
“Adventure Time” by Pendleton Ward
Ok this is a little long, but I swear it’s totally worth it. I think Mike was the one who introduced me to this, which pretty much explains why we’re such good friends.
I heard that they’re making this into a TV series, which is very exciting news for me (I don’t get out much).
Some people may already know Don Hertzfeldt from his “Rejected” short ( in HD!), so here’s one of his earliest films. His more recent work is only available on DVD, and you can find them on his website.
And just for fun, here’s something I animated at work a few years back:
Thanks for reading/watching!
