Le Festival international du film d’animation d’Annecy vient de regrouper tous les courts métrages réalisés par les étudiants de l’école de l’image des Gobelins présentés lors de l’évènement depuis 1999 ; on parle ici de 92 films, soit entre cinq et six par an. Si les vidéos sont certes courtes, elles laissent néanmoins entrevoir le talent des élèves amenés à marquer de leurs empreintes la production audiovisuelle, que ce soit en réalisant des clips de groupes, des publicités ou encore des longs métrages.

Oscar-Winning Animated Short, The Dot and the Line, Celebrates Geometry and Hard Work (1965) The animated short above, The Dot and the Line, directed by the great Chuck Jones and narrated by English actor Robert Morley, won an Oscar in 1965 for Best Animated Short Film. Based on the satirical 1884 fantasy novel Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions by Edwin Abbott Abbott (which you can read in full here), “The Dot and the Line” tells the story of a romance between two geometric shapes—taking the archetypal narrative trajectory of boy meets girl, loses girl, wins girl in the end (finding himself along the way) and injecting it with some fascinating social commentary that still resonates almost fifty years later.

One way of watching “The Dot and the Line” is as a “triumph of the nerd” story, where an anxious square (as in “uncool”) Line has to compete with a hipster beatnik Squiggle of a rival for the affections of a flighty Dot. via Boing Boing. Is It Always Right to Be Right?: Orson Welles Narrates a 1970 Oscar-Winning Animation That Still Resonates Today. Is it possible for a short film made during the Nixon administration to perfectly describe America’s current, completely screwed up political situation? Sure, Lee Mishkin’s Oscar-winning animated short Is It Always Right to Be Right? (1970) might date itself through oblique references to hippies, the Vietnam war and the Civil Rights movement, not to mention the movie’s groovy animation style, but the message of the movie feels surprisingly relevant today. You can watch the movie above. The short, which is narrated by none other than Orson Welles, describes a land where everyone believed themselves to be right, and where indecisiveness and complexity were considered utterly weak.

Then someone tried to temper this stark black-and-white world by saying things like “I might be wrong,” which starts a cascade of introspection and tolerance. A year later, you might be interested to know, Orson Welles narrated another animated parable. Is It Always Right to Be Right? Related Content: Watch the Funky, Oscar-Winning Animated Film Featuring the Music of Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass (1966) The first part of this 1966 Oscar winning animated short is so utterly charming, I'm surprised it hasn't spawned a contemporary remake.

The theme---a brave little flea going up against greedy developers who are transforming his rustic homeland into a high rise vacation paradise for cigar-chomping high rollers and their stacked molls---sounds like the sort of thing that might appeal to Dreamworks. Of course, we'd need to flesh out the characters if we're shooting for feature length.

Give that shambling donkey and plump-bottomed hen some wisecracking attitude, and maybe some mirrored shades. I'm thinking something in the Chris Rock/Whoopie Goldberg/Nathan Lane-type vein. Get a kid to voice the flea. Obviously, we're talking 3D CGI. Speaking of retro, we could maybe hang onto a bit of the "Spanish Flea" thing out of respect and because of the character being a flea and all. Enough! The original is absolutely perfect as is, funky and funny, with loads of loose-y goose-y personality. Blank on Blank | Famous Names, Lost Interviews. Tivine.
