Ten Notable Animated Shorts Between 2000-2009//
Joining the YAM’s Unofficial Animation Week with a little something.
A lot of people love short films, they’re less time-consuming than feature length films, and there are many times when we find a diamond in the making. Guillermo del Toro thinks so! Isn’t he pushing for a feature length of that freaky cute little Alma?
So here we have a list of ten animated shorts released between 2000-2009
The only rule? Choose one short a year.
2000 – Rejected
Don Hertzfeldt hovers that fine line of cult hit and actual popularity. A lot of people seem to know him, just as many have no idea who he is. Maybe you only recognize his stick figures, or the little cloud famous for his “bleeding anus.”
Rejected was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Short, only beaten by…
2001 – Father and Daughter
The Academy has the reputation of choosing sentimentality over lighter fare, which explains why Father and Daughter was ahead of Rejected. Whether you think one is cooler than the other, Father and Daughter has its merits for bringing a moving story forth with style.
