A moving choreography by Savannah College of Art and Design student Chelsea Jones, merges dance and animation in a breathtaking single take.
Gobelins students flex their animation muscles in this ode to getting ripped, “Sweatness.”
The students of Gobelins strike again. “Myosis” is an existential love story, a lyrical tale of passion and the creative destruction sometimes necessary to stay in touch with it.
The animation is stunning, but so is the overall art direction. Impeccable control of the palette combines with elegantly framed shots to create a powerful sequence of visuals. Superbly done.
Some nice process work in Guillaume Dousse’s portfolio.

A group of talented Supinfocom Arles graduates have released their 2012 thesis film, “Contre temps.” Chock full of gorgeous shots, the film is set in a surreally beautiful world besieged by a cycle of flooding that threatens the lives of a father and daughter on a daily basis.
The story feels like a sketch of something much grander, something I’d love to see developed further. It’s worth watching for its lush art direction alone, though.
Tip of the hat to Ash Thorp.
Kaleb Lechowski’s “R’ha” ups the ante for solo writer/director/animators, proving that while the barrier to entry for solo animated filmmaking is lower than ever, expectations for production quality are rapidly rising.
Lechowski, 22, modeled most of the short’s assets in Blender and used Maya for shading, rigging, animation and most of the rendering (with Mental Ray). He leaned on¬†zBrush for sculpting and Nuke and AfterEffects for compositing.¬†Lechowski created “R’ha” during his first year studies at Germany’s¬†Berlin Mediadesign Hochschule.
