Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

In this cute little animated short by Birdbox Studio, a man comes across an unusual car guard in a parking lot. The man confidently taunts the captive dog but they who laugh last, laugh the loudest. That was a mouthful wasn’t it? See if the man bites off more than he can chew in Carpark.

Rollin’ Safari

Life on the African plains can be treacherous, but the students at Filmakademie Baden-W├╝rttemberg in Germany take a light-hearted look at it in their trailers for an upcoming animation and visual effects conference.

In each of the animated shorts for Rollin’ Safari, we see animals like flamingos and zebras in their natural habitat when they’re set upon by predators. But things don’t go according to plan due to some hilarious changes to their physical characteristics. I’d rather not spoil it for you so have a look at the four animated shorts after the jump.

Dubstep Dispute

Dubstep is invading our lives. It’s part of Darth Vader’s walk-in music and badgers are exercising to it. Heck, your mom can make dubstep.

This cute animated short from Fluxel Media shows that dubstep solves everything, even disputes between worker droids.

The State of Wikipedia

You may remember that almost a year ago, JESS3 made a fantastic visualization about the Internet (see it here). Just the other day they released yet another animated infographic, this time on the beloved collaborative encyclopedia Wikipedia, which so happens to be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. It’s a fascinating look at the inception of this online encyclopedia, the phenomenal amount of interest in it, and contributions made to it. Check it out below.

See and read more about the project at www.thestateofwikipedia.com.

Fox vs Rooster

A fox and a rooster come upon a field full of champagne bottles and start goofing around. It’s all fun and games until someone loses and eye or gets popped on the testicles.
