My Dad by Marcus Armitage

“A short film depicting a dad’s influence on a young boy’s life. His judgmental character mixed with the boys fondness for his dad prove to be a toxic mix that tears away at a world of opportunity and experiences. A short animation made with oil pastels and newspaper clippings.”

 

Unnamed Truths by Sophie Marsh

“Bristol-based animator, Sophie Marsh created an ABC fact file filled with animals in her paper film for adults. Produced by Calling the Shots.”

 

The Mascot by Ladislas Starevicz

“Starewicz had become a master animator by 1933, incorporating techniques never used before and rarely since (such as moving the puppets during the actual exposure to create blurring for fast movement). His use of rear-screen projection is also surprisingly effective.”
