After seeing the eyecandy Avatar throws at us, it's nice to see were we came from. It started with movies like The Enchanted Drawing back in 1900.

On June 27, 2008 the new Pixar movie Wall-E will be released. The movie is about a robot that lived alone for 700 years. But one day all of that changes. Pixar did a great job by making Wall-E a character that is very curious and not so smart. Besides the trailer I also added a short Wall-E animation. Wall-E Trailer

Fifty Percent Grey is a short animated film about a dead soldier arriving in heaven. If you don't like bloody shots then I advice you not to watch the clip.

What if each movement of your head was equal to a sound?
A funny little animation about Blanca who adores art but doesn't 'know' anything about it.
I read the story, on which this animation is based, in a book. Can't remember which book it was but the story stuck in my head. I even told it to other people. Today I ran into an animation which tells the exact same story: The Good Life. A great way of telling what's really important in life. via zinfo
Studio Smack is a collective of young artists searching for new esthetics and concepts. Three young graphic designers of Studio Smack made a film about legible signs in town. The typo-animation Kapitaal (Capital) is an impression of the enormous amount of visual stimuli that plague us every day. The amount is so big that its commercial effectiveness has become utterly dubious. via
Waking Life is a movie about a young man in a persistent lucid dream-like state. The entire film was shot using digital video and then a team of artists using computers drew stylized lines and colors over each frame.
