    So, as a result of some random chat we started exchanging links to animated shorts that were really nice and cool so I thought we should share with the rest of CL "because you're worth it".

    There is some real skill shown in these and I found them quite inspiring and beautiful.

    Shout out to @Cenica and @PureBoredom for finding and sharing these.

    Warning: Lots of videos!

    "The Maker" by Christopher Kezelos - A tale of existential crisis? What it is to live only to create.

    "Heart" by Erick Oh

    "Mau" by ESMA Movies (a French team of animators) - Maybe being revered being a cat in ancient Egypt is not all it seems..

    Haha. It's still a good short though. Even thought it tends to make you cry. In fact quite a few shorts have sad endings. Bittersweet even.

    The Reward

    The Reward is a nine-minute animated short directed by Mikkel Mainz Elkjær and Kenneth Ladekjær. It is their graduation film at the animation workshop. For more information, visit the short's BLOG.

    Okay but yeah, basically it's about two strangers who go on an adventure together and become bros along the way. Hella good stuff right here and soon to be continued as the "Tales of Alethrion" through the thanks of its kickstarter.


    The Backwater Gospel

    Bachelor film project 2011 from The Animation Workshop.

    As long as anyone can remember, the coming of The Undertaker has meant the coming of death. Until one day the grim promise fails and tension builds as the God fearing townsfolk of Backwater wait for someone to die.

    Totally didn't notice the shape of the window til the second time I watched this.

    Seems like it might be based off of a Brother's Grimm tale or something.

    Let me add a few shorts here too.

    Since I am Gorillaz fan, I found this thing way back. Not too short though, 10+ minutes.

    This next one is funny and serious at the same time. And somehow quite cool.

    And this... this is the greatest one of all. And it's about a viking!
