Multiplex: The Chosen One

This is the final version of the Multiplex animated short I made for my Animation class this semester. No promises, but hopefully this will be the first of many! Thanks (again) to Matt Matonich for providing the voice of Kurt!

Some of you will recognize Jason’s final line as a title of Multiplex #285, so I’m sort of recycling something here, but not really. In any case, Jason and Kurt being in red vests is an indication that these shorts take place outside of current Multiplex continuity.

If you enjoyed this short, support the Multiplex Patreon and I’ll do more over the summer!

“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.
