Animated shorts and features Anonymous 09/01/2020 (Tue) 22:27:04 No.530
[JW09 ~ 10/27/2019] I saw this short by chance last night and really enjoyed it. Well-executed concept with a distinctive visual style. >Thursday >Dir: Matthias Hoegg / UK / 2010 https://invidio.us/watch?v=HQ1z0Zzqg5U <An everyday love story set in the not so distant future sees blackbirds battling with technology, automatic palm readers and power cuts. I looked for more content from Matthias Hoegg, but found that he's chosen a more profitable career as animator for hire. Still he's done interesting work for various corporate and non-profit clients. https://vimeo.com/matthiashoegg

It's cool that the same person is responsible for subtitling most of these shorts (and many more). He posts a lot of the dvds on kg. https://karagarga.in/history.php?id=30362

Chudesa v reshete AKA A Fantastic Tale (1978) https://invidio.us/watch?v=nR4LOcU7yQY Russian animated English nursery rhymes, with strange results that diverge from the original text <Ironically, this Russian cartoon is more English than anything the BBC have produced in 20 years! http://www.animator.ru/db/?ver=eng&p=show_film&fid=2734 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6583366/ Check out this great yt channel for more Russian animation with exclusive English subtitles https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUYmVzJGyzirq_eKlDGBzDA
Krysar is the most interesting animation I've seen lately. It's based on the Pied Piper story. The images are rough and grotesque, a more horrifying version of German expressionism. Maybe you don't know this, but the Pied Piper is based on a mysterious event in the German town of Hamelin. >The earliest written record is from the town chronicles in an entry from 1384 which states: "It is 100 years since our children left." >Although research has been conducted for centuries, no explanation for the historical event is universally accepted as true.
A winter tale 1945 https://invidio.us/watch?v=09AH5boq14U Comfy Christmas viewing from Ivan Ivanov-Vano with a strong Disney influence I think the Soviet authorities liked Walt at first, but they later turned against the animators influenced by him for being too cosmopolitan.
Excellent twitter account for Folklore Films, usually animated: https://twitter.com/FolkloreFilmFes
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j800SVeiS5I IN-SHADOW: A Modern Odyssey An unflinching, dead-on representation of the modern world, with very creative and carefully considered imagery. Something I didn't notice at first is that everyone in it has their eyes closed, except for the very last shot.
>>539 >Something I didn't notice at first is that everyone in it has their eyes closed, except for the very last shot. I didn't notice that either. Thanks for posting. This one made a big impact on me when I first saw it, but I forgot the name so I've wanted to find it again.

>more than ten posts >no mention of Don Hertzfeldt https://archive.org/details/Don_Hertzfeldt_Collection Use the torrent (bittorrent can download from three servers at once, much faster than direct) It's Such A Beautiful Day (2012) is compulsory viewing, fullscreen, no ads (It's the VOLUME 2 in the link above, 480p). I think Netflix may have it in better quality; I managed to find a 1080p version on https://archive.org/details/its.-such.a.-beautiful.-day.-2012 but it has burned in Spanish subtitles. More /co/core coming soon.
>>675 hey, 1080p version can be found on rarbg https://rarbg.to/torrent/v3ujnaf the 6.30 gb is the same one on private trackers
>>679 I searched for over an hour before and couldn't find any 1080p. Thanks a heap Anon.

Still thinking about Lubomir Arsov's In Shadow Since he works in the industry, I wonder if he modeled this animation on a specific director?
>>539 Here's a similar animated short that people have been talking about lately, although it was produced six years ago. This one is more mysterious than In Shadow, but once again it's an esoteric version of reality that is rooted in hard truths. I, Pet Goat II" by - Heliofant https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65xLByzT1l0 >A story about the fire at the heart of suffering. Bringing together dancers, musicians, visual artists and 3d animators, the film takes a critical look at current events. A mysterious figure travels aboard his boat through a dark and desolate landscape in his quest for inner peace. >Animation is about half keyframe animation and half motion capture.

This week I've been watching American animation from the early sound era. Although I like the "rubber hose" aesthetic, most of the shorts are not very impressive. It's best to stick to the well-known material from this period or you'll be disappointed. I did enjoy this short from Ub Iwerks depicting a bizarre cloud city where every person, plant, object is a balloon. Balloon Land (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebheRwzy8_Q For contrast here's a much weaker effort from Ub, only interesting because of mildly offensive racial caricature. I'm surprised this seems to be the only animated version of Little Black Sambo and it doesn't even follow the original story. Little Black Sambo (1935) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1T_60wazTsk

Bimbo's Initiation shows a secret society pressuring Bimbo the Dog to join them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48Ka0xvim3c >The "darkest" of all is the Talkartoon Bimbo's Initiation, which Leslie Cabarga has accurately described as "a bad dream," in which Bimbo is pursued through an underground maze by bouncing, hooded figures who ask menacingly, "Wanna be a member? Wanna be a member?" When Bimbo says no, he finds himself in one harrowing predicament after another, caught in a nightmarish world from which he cannot escape. This unsettling cartoon depicts the adult theme of a struggle for personal autonomy within The System. I happened to find a cockney's video analysis highlighting a long list of other subliminal (often sexual) aspects of the short. I wonder if you guys think there's merit to what he says. I'm too much of an empiricist to fully invest in unverifiable psychological assertions, but it's entertaining to hear his perspective regardless. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIVO-XCuDGc

The Man Who Planted Trees A friend shared this with me yesterday, figured some of you fags might appreciate it as well. Both he and I noted the animation feels very Canadian, although we can't put a finger on exactly how this is. https://archive.org/details/TheManWhoPlantedTrees19871
>>1550 Love that short.
>>1550 >Both he and I noted the animation feels very Canadian, although we can't put a finger on exactly how this is It's full of soy and weak cucks?
>>1552 Kek, no. This was made in the 80s and adapted from a short story by a frog who got arrested several times on suspicion of being a nazi sympathiser.
>>1550 I remember watching this as a kid. >>1554 >Spoiler Even better now.

Mad God is a stop-motion feature film 30 years in the making, the passion project of industry veteran Phil Tippett https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPScwQ-FAbI https://ytprivate.com/watch?v=iPScwQ-FAbI

>>531 Fire Burns in Yaranga (1956; no subtitles) - https://daftsex.com/watch/-181207367_456242980 I should have included a 'cartoons based on indigenous folklore of Russia's north' category since there's a breadth of films on this topic. This here is a masterpiece, the animation and art direction is absolutely incredible, the smoothness rivals Disney and it's a small-time short obscure even by SoyuzMultifilm standards. It's a shame that soviet animation got ostracized by MSM, wish more people saw all this goodness.
>>2112 MAD certainly seems to be the word Anon. As in, "Well it sure looks like this master animator has gone mad in the end, it seems." >will not watch/10 >t. animator with lots of respect for the man.
>>1465 Fleischer doesn't get enough love nowadays. I'd like to explore the Out of the Inkwell cartoons more thoroughly eventually. This one's my favorite of the ones I've seen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NEzpCD2Yb8 >>2110 >>2111 The Sand Castle is one of my favorite animated films of all time. I first saw it as a kid, and it took me until a few years ago to find out what the name of it was. >>2112 I avoid modern movies like this plague, but this looks neat.
>>2195 >I avoid modern movies like this Nothing modern about it. In fact it looks better than any modern film just from art direction, cinematography and editing point of view.
>>2196 I meant "like the plague" but didn't proofread my post. The fact that it doesn't look like a modern movie is why it appeals to me.
>>2195 You know it's funny, I hated Mad God, but it's ironically not a "modern film" because it took 30 years to make. You are the opposite of me.

I like the stairs of progress sequence in Scurta istorie, a short animation from Ion Popescu-Gopo. He both uses a man picking a flower and atomic energy again in his live-action feature A Bomb Was Stolen. https://inv.riverside.rocks/watch?v=jI53-N6mGX8

Open file (6.19 MB 600x480 Treasure.Island.mp4)
Building upon >>531 here's a handy twitter account that highlights animated gems from Eastern Europe https://nitter.net/EasternOoC A few months ago the account shared this clip from the 1989 Soviet version of Treasure Island. This film has frequent (rather annoying) live action interludes where actors dressed as pirates tell the young viewers about the benefits of things like physical fitness and moral behavior. They have a well-meaning message, especially compared to current children's programming made by the Cold War victors, but as usual the Soviet propaganda has no subtlety. It's heavy-handed and out-of-place for the Treasure Island story.
