Gumball Wars by Scott Thierauf. The two gumball machines have very distinct personalities and Thierauf uses them to great effect in this mini masterpiece. It is very funny too – I just love the way the blue gumball machine snickers! If this little story has any moral it is perhaps that patience has its own rewards.
not over by Toru Hayai: A large cryptid's journey over land and see, over mountains and through deserts. Yet what is his goal? You will have to watch till the end to find out! This rather plush looking animation (created in 3dsmax Vray and Vue xstream) is brought to you by Toru Hayai.
Winner of Best Animation at the 2012 Vimeo Festival + Awards. An explorer adventures into an unknown world, yet it seems that he has been there before. The animation is all hand-drawn; a mix of drawing / pastels on paper and digital animation with Toonboom Studio and a wacom cintiq tablet, assembled in After Effects 7 and edited in Sony Vegas 8.
