Short Animations

For my cham seminar class today, I am going to show two short videos (both were nominated the Oscars - a sign of their excellence if networking abilities - and one won).

Presto!

Presto is about a magician and his hungry rabbit. Defies logic, but is funny and cute. Good to create light hearted moments - just get into it.

La Maison is much more mellow fare. It's about an old man who lives in a world were the ocean is rising. It submerges his house and every now and then he has to build another house on top of the one he lives in - resulting in smaller and smaller cubes. It's a little like building blocks. One day he travels down into the submerged homes of his past to look for something he lost, and finds much more - things he forgot he had.
