Synopsis: Based on a webcomic that started 10 years ago, and characters that are 15 years old, Norm & Cory is an animated short encapsulating what a show based on it would be like.

Espero? (Hope?)

Posted by festival - in Animated Short Films Competition

Espero_02Country: UK, 2013
Director: Simone Giampaolo
Synopsis: Graduation film created at the National Centre for Computer Animation in Bournemouth (UK) by Simone Giampaolo, Yifan Hu and Henrik Linnes. ESPERO? (HOPE?) is a humorous, entertaining but also educational animated comedy which sarcastically shows how Gaia, our planet Earth, met humankind years and years ago, and all the problems which followed. A criticism of our modern society and of the way we’ve been ‘evolving’ over the centuries. Apart from having a quite original visual style, ESPERO? (HOPE?) is also the very first 3D animated film fully dubbed in Esperanto, a beautiful universal language created over a hundred years ago to foster peace and international understanding between people.

Preferably Blue

Posted by festival - in Animated Short Films Competition

PB3Country: New Zeeland, 2011
Director: Alan Dickson
Synopsis:Preferably Blue is a bittersweet fairytale that your parents would never have readto you before bedtime. Their fear that you may turn out to be a bitter adult, knocking back anti-depressants like they were liquorice allsorts, if you didn’t get what you wanted for Christmas, was probably the reason.
Based on real events, it’s the story of how the Easter Bunny managed to stop drinking and found peace, joy, and a good friend. It’s also the story of Santa. We all know that “modern shopping mall” Santa is just some guy dressed up in a musty, damp, sweaty red suit. But ours the story of the real Santa, who was indeed a very nice chap, but lonely. Oh so lonely.
Together, Santa and Easter Bunny will discover the true meaning of Christmas, which, surprisingly, is getting a Banana seat bike.
Before when I said that Preferably Blue is based on real events, I didn’t mean Santa and Easter Bunny, because they’re not real. But when I was young all I wanted was a banana seat bike and I never got one. I got models of tractors instead and that made me miserable. Every Christmas the Bromley family who lived next door would be riding around on their new bikes, and I’d watch them
from inside, pushing my dumb tractor up and down the windowsill.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the story.
