Animation production has proceeded apace through the pandemic, as we well know. Here’s some grassroots proof: a grab bag of independent short films made under, and mostly about, lockdown.

Even when the titles — Try to Remain Calm, 1 Bottle o’ Wine, Quarantine of the Damned! — suggest desperation, the films themselves confront this strangest of periods with wit, humor, and philosophy.
