    Thanks for posting. I watched through the animated ones and had seen the Maggie one yesterday after the Simpsons but the Head over Heels one said "Access Denied".

    Out of the ones I saw I think Adam and Dog one is the best. The animation is incredible on that one.

    Paper Man will win the animated, Curfew the live action and Kings Point the documentary short award. :eek:

    I take that back: Inocente is pretty powerful... the dramatic effect with the cinematography is superb. I agree with you, percicles.

    The Paper Man one was AMAZING. Love the way the animation looked, 3d with 2d, haven't seen anything that beautiful. And the story was great too. I was bored by the Adam and Dog one. Simpsons one was good too, but not great.

    I tried embedding it via Chromes inspect elements option. I guess there's a lock. You can see the entire thing in the link provided.

    I like the animation
    but I thought the story was boring.


    Paperboy has been getting alot of praise
    new technique of mixing traditional animation and computer animation
    or so i am told

    Paper Man was good but it just seemed too standard Disney in terms of the style of the people and the story. I liked Adam and Dog because visually it seemed very different. The story was slow but that was part of the appeal to me. It wasn't about fast pacing but about being in the moment.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Paper Man won. I think there might be something cultural regarding the two. Adam and Dog really does have a Japanese feel to it where Paper Man is very Western in feel.

    I understand.
    I find it interesting that while the techniques may have improved
    the storytelling is still just ok

    Old School Tom and Jerry were IMO just as good if not better

    The ones directed by CHUCK JONES sucked. :eek:

    The ones by Hannah/Barbera and Fred Quimby were better. The echoes in the Chuck Jones ones made them suck.
