Oscar Nominees on YouTube

Two very good animated shorts, both nominated for an Oscar in 1995, have turned up on YouTube. In the short but amusing BIG STORY, a stop motion Kirk Douglas argues with himself. The film was directed by David Stoten and Tim Watts.

Michael Dudok de Wit‘s THE MONK AND THE FISH is a beautifully designed and animated short by an artist who understands how to use the animation medium to tell a story. I’m sure many have already seen this short, but if you haven’t, here’s your chance.
