Pig Me

A poor pig escapes from the butcher’s claws just to find himself in horrible surroundings. Fortunately, he’ll find a refuge in a little pet shop… Fortunately?

Pig Me is a short film by five students of Animation Workshop: Mette Tange, Israel Hernanadez, Ditte Gade, Marie-Louise Højer Jensen, Rebecca Bang Sørensen.

It reminds me of that scene at the beginning of 101 Dalmatians. And it is as good as that!

PATRICK BOIVIN – AT-AT Day Afternoon

Another fine piece created by Patrick Boivin, for all Star Wars fans out there but not only for them. The sound track is Bible School by Blithe Field.

When he was a kid, there were two things Patrick wanted badly and never got: a real dog and a Kenner AT-AT Walker. Now he has them; that is, he has something that is both.
