The Academy has announced its short list for animated short films. This list will be narrowed down to five come early January and the nominees will be announced on Jan. 25th.
The 10 films are listed below in alphabetical order by title, with their production company:
- “The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger,” Bill Plympton, director (Bill Plympton Studio)
“Coyote Falls,” Matthew O’Callaghan, director and Sam Register, executive producer (Warner Bros. Animation Inc.)
“Day & Night,” Teddy Newton, director (Pixar Animation Studios)
“The Gruffalo,” Jakob Schuh and Max Lang, directors (Magic Light Pictures)
“Let’s Pollute,” Geefwee Boedoe, story-design-animation (Geefwee Boedoe)
“The Lost Thing,” Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann, directors (Passion Pictures Australia)
“Madagascar, Carnet de Voyage (Madagascar, a Journey Diary),” Bastien Dubois, director (Sacrebleu Productions)
“Sensology,” Michel Gagne, director-producer (GAGNE International LLC)
“The Silence beneath the Bark,” Joanna Lurie, director (Lardux Films)
“Urs,” Moritz Mayerhofer, director (Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg)
I’m glad to see “Sensology” by Michel Gagne and “The Gruffalo” by Jakob Schuh and Max Lang on the list. Others I’m really sad to see there. And where is the one really funny film, Don Hertzfeldt’s “Wisdom Teeth”?
Congrats, also, to Bill Plympton for making the list for “The Cow Who Wanted to Be a Hamburger,”
