Some of my favorite Animated Short Films


Here are some highly inspirational and brilliantly executed animated short films, that I find some of the best ever made. I have watched them several times, and get back to them every once in a while, if I’m looking for inspiration.

You can watch all of these Short Films on Youtube or similar sites. I’m not sure if all of them have been officially released to the public, so I won’t link them here.


Great Books on Filmmaking

Preparing for FMX


FMX. Which is an awesome experience, so I’ve heard. This year I’ll be attending it for the first time, and I’m very much looking forward to it :-)

So far I’ve managed to get a fresh batch of visiting cards, some hundred of them, though I don’t believe I’ll pass all of them ;-) and am thinking about producing some Demo Reel Dvds with nice cases, and maybe a kind of “portfolio-book” thingy, to show off, when there are no computers around.

The program is quite impressive, and I’ll do my best to suck in all of those interesting facts :-D

See you there!
