Our friends at Short of the Week, an essential website about short-form filmmaking, have recognized five animated shorts for their annual Short of the Week Awards. They chose three winners amongst films that debuted online in 2012: The Eagleman Stag by Mikey Please, I’m Fine Thanks by Eammonn O’Neill and will by Eusong Lee. The two runner-ups were I, Pet Goat II by Louis Lefebvre and Ruin by Wes Ball.
All of the shorts can be viewed on ShortOfTheWeek.com. Their site also features a roundtable discussion about the future of animation with four of the five winners.
