A tour of more than a dozen standout narrative, abstract and student short films from the 41st edition of the Ottawa International Animation Festival.
North America’s leading animation film festival, The Ottawa International Animation Festival, was in full swing September 20-24, presenting more than 100 narrative, non-narrative and student shorts from 85 different countries over the course of its 41st edition.
Sog by Jonatan Schwenk (Germany)
This unsettling and disturbing student animation by Jonatan Schwenk from the Offenbach Academy of Arts and Design, Kunsthochschule Kassel, employs 2D and 3D computer animation and puppets to arresting effect in a narrative that appears to take place toward the very end of creation.
After a flood, some fishes got stuck in old trees. In danger of drying-out they scream sharply. Awakened by the noise, the inhabitants of a nearby cave don’t feel happy about the unintended gathering.
The Animation World Network is the largest animation-related publishing group on the Internet, providing readers from over 151 countries with a wide range of interesting, relevant and helpful information pertaining to all aspects of animation.
