“How did feathers evolve?” by Carl Zimmer and Armella Leung

This terrific animated short from TED-Ed looks at the evolution of modern bird feathers using narration by Carl Zimmer and some lovely animation by Armella Leung. Beautifully done.

“Paperman” by John Kahrs

Paperman played in front of Wreck-It Ralph‘s theatrical run, and it was absolutely wonderful. (Your mileage may vary, but if you appreciate a little magical realism, you’ll probably dig it.) The music by Christophe Beck is lovely, the sort of hybrid 2D/CGI animation technique is lovely… It’s just a lovely short film. If you haven’t seen it, enjoy. If you have, I’m sure you’ll enjoy seeing it again.

“Marcel, King of Tervuren” by Tom Schroeder

This is a really cool animated short by Tom Schroeder (who is apparently from Minnesota). It’s playing in the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Fair warning: There’s a little bit of not-too-graphic rooster-on-rooster violence in there for you sensitive ones.

“Lake Beast” by Vance Reeser

“Lake Beast” is a short film funded in part by an early Kickstarter project by Vance Reeser, and it’s one I’m proud to say I contributed to. (By “early,” I mean the pre-2011/2012 explosion where people started making millions of dollars. It was up around the same time that my Multiplex: Enjoy Your Show project was up, in late 2009.)

At long last, the short has been completed. It’s a dream-like short about childhood vision that “compels a man to explore the bottom of a toxic lake,” and I highly recommend investing the seven(-ish) minutes of your life to watch it. It’s also up on Vimeo and you can purchase it (for however much you’re willing to give) via Gumroad, as well. Or, just watch it here:
