BOOK ...Man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much... the wheel, New York, wars, and so on, whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely the dolphins believed themselves to be more intelligent than man for precisely the same reasons.

Animated Shorts

Monsterbox is a beautiful, heart warming story of a girl who loves animals, and an old man who loves his plants, and of the realization of what really matters in life.

The guy's head is shaped like a bird, and the girl is like a hedgehog. Wonder if that means something? Anyways, the girl has a ton of hair, and when I saw it, I wanted to draw something like it! To be honest, I thought the animals were a bit odd, but perhaps that adds to the humor. Overall, I thought it was really nice, and the ending was awesome! The mechanics of it was sweet.

Thought of You, an Award Winning 2d Animated Film By Ryan J Woodward. Breathtaking, fantastic and inspiring short film which explores the theme of love through expressive figure drawings and contemporary dance.

“Odyssey” by Digital District

“Legacy” by Grzegorz Jonkajtys, a classic short about the travels of a galactic librarian and one of the discoveries he catalogues. This short was the “Uplift Universe” Cgtalk challenge winner in Individual video category.

Changing Batteries. This touching 3D animation from MMU, Malaysia, is about an old woman that lives alone. One day she gets a robot, who at first just does chores. However, in time they become friends…

“Cidade Colorida” by Nebula Studios, of a guy who brings color to the individuals of a city

Destiny. A short of a man controled by fate and time, and his attempt to get away from them.

This one is about a boy who goes out in search of “Dragon Blood” in order to save his mother, only to discover something even better.

The Guardian by NeroGeistis a random, off the wall short about a kid walking through the woods ati night. I really like it because of the fiddle! There's also a sequel, though I didn't like it as much.

The discription is as follows: “The Tale of the Three Brothers is a fairy tale told to wizard children. Supposedly written by Beedle the Bard, it is published as part of a series of works that collectively are called The Tales of Beedle the Bard. While most wizards view this story as one that teaches children morals (e.g. humility, wisdom, etc.), some believe that the story refers to the Deathly Hallows, three highly powerful magical artefacts coveted by generations of wizards, and the three Peverell brothers who first obtained them. 'The Tale of the Three Brothers' also has a different variation, referring to the twilight as midnight to make it more suspenseful for the entertainment of children, but in Dumbledore's original copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard it refers to the journey taking place at twilight.”

Awesome animated short “Shapeshifter” created by CHRLX. It opens mysteriously on a dark car, speeding through the night on winding mountain roads. The car transforms as the narrator talks of imagination and pushing past the limits. The music is set to a haunting musical composition and prose poem, performed by Gabriel Byrne, who also narrates. Charlex (also known as CHRLX since 1998) is an American animation studio set in New York City that has created and produced commercials and animation for decades.

Funny little video about a fridge that runs away from home because it thinks it's being replaced.
