Animation Marathon – Part III

We are back with new recommendations of short animation films, of varied themes and styles, so enjoy and send us a few titles you would like us to include in future posts.

How to Disappear / Film by Merlin Flügel, Sound Design: Jonatan Schwenk 

“A film about the melancholy, the end and the beginning. A hypnotic voyage without any wind.”

The Man with the Beautiful Eyes / Film by Jonathan Hodgson, collaboration with Illustrator Jonny Hannah.

“A gang of kids find a strange house with an overgrown garden where they play. Only once do they meet the man who lives there, a dead-beat alcoholic with a free and easy spirit who welcomes them. The children see him as a romantic character in stark contrast to their neurotically house proud parents.”

Ground Floor / By Asya Aizen

“An urban environment reflects the inner feelings of a city walker.”

Brain Lapse / Hand-drawn animation with ink, white-out, coffee and collage by Jake Fried.

The Star/ “An animated ‘fairy tale’ about a young man who, one day, finds a star on his block.”

Written and Directed by Matthew Palmer. Illustrations and Animation by Laura Carton. Voice by Shariffe Rahming.

Aplasie / By Emilie Phuong

“A man hospitalized for leukemia compares his situation to that of people from the carefree, external world.”
