Because lot of people here are into animation and I watched many short films on YT today, I thought that maybe we could share interesting vids we saw/like =) And because some of us are interested in concept/character design, we could talk about these aspects of videos too, maybe? =)

My two cents for now:

Oooh, I saw those a while ago, I really liked the first one °o° Sounds wierd but that first one sums up life too damn well, with the look on that guy's face at the end x)
"Dahell do you want me to do with that bro?"

But I have to admit that this is more my kind of animation *_* : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TLzhlsEFcVQ
There's too many manly orcs and michaelbay-ing not to like it. And god damn... I don't think anybody but Blizzard could pull out "Times change." in such a god damn epic way. Those guys should be making movies instead of videogames.

Yeah, I really felt for that guy at the end :D and i agree, it is very nice metaphor for life and visually nicely done :)

Aaaaand Blizzard is whole another league :D that's why we all pee'd a little when they finally announced Warcraft movie :D their cinematics were always stunning. I liked in game cinematics/videos in Warlords of Draenor, they were more painterly, but high quality nevertheless :) I'm on tablet so I can't post link here :?

Yep yep, I wonder how that movie will come out. If it is bad, there's a serious risk of murder given the fanbase xD

They would be in a big big trouble :D there's no doubt it will be visually pleasing, but I'm concerned about the story, because, let's be honest, todays movirs are not the most elaborate thoughtful pieces :D

Movies can be alright... it's the quality of the scenarios Blizzard is pulling out lately that seeeeeeeriously makes me nervous. I don't know if you play WoW but the story of that last expansion of the game, which this trailer was for... By the end of it, let's just say you have a furous temptation to do that : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZxzJGgox_E

Haven't really played last few expansions, and even when I played WoW I didn't feel the story or lore was very present there but I'm not very dedicated player, so that may be the cause :D but I have read quite a few warcraft and WoW books and those were very good, so I hope they will keep up with the standard :D

"Shut up boy" x)
That grandpa seems excited haha, also reminds me a lot of some sort of mix of Meatboy and World of Goo (which has amazing soundtrack btw). Very nice animation anyways °o°

Here's something to keep you awake at night:

I like this animation short done by Glen Keane, one of my favorite animators, called Duet :D . I really miss good old fashioned 2D animation.

That's a really interesting style, but i don't know if it would be good as a full featured length film, but it would be interesting to see.

Here is an animation i stumbled upon and thought was great, it has a similar style to Dark Noir with the monsters. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmPvjZKBNYY

850 is one of the strangest fairytale I've seen in a while xD

There was a time period from which I spent a solid week watching short films for fun xD
