Favorite Oscar Nominated Short Animations
For Valentine’s Day we went to see the short animations that have been nominated for Oscars this year. We came away with two favorites.
We Can’t Live Without Cosmos, directed by Konstantin Bronzit, is about two cosmonauts who are best friends. It’s made in a simple, hand-drawn style, and it’s a very moving story. There are small, poetic touches in the animation that are quiet little surprises. A film with a warm heart.
Historia de un Oso, directed by Gabriel Osorio, is computer animation, and at the beginning of the film I thought that the slick look of it was going to make it hard to enjoy, but as soon as the story within the story began, it showed a truly amazing visual and spatial imagination. This film is cute and scary and sad and touched by a dark politics.
If you like animations, I have tons of them posted.
