  2. Published on 24th of May 2018.

    A measly little worm finds himself homeless, for all the apples are taken by other worms. He’s an outcast in the stormy night, until he discovers the biggest apple of them all. It’s vacant and it’s… mobile!

    Under The Apple Tree is an animated stop motion horror comedy about worms, apples and death. But also a film about family troubles. A film with a heart, although it might not be beating any more.

    A film worth freezing for. (Anchorage International Film Festival, Alaska, USA)
    18 minutes of macabre delight, this short should be every child’s first horror experience (The Ink And Code)

  4. While browsing the bookstore 19-year-old Gwen is unexpectedly drawn to a volume of kinky erotica, earning her disapproving glares from the other customers. Will Gwen follow her deepest desires or will she let her embarrassment restrain her?

    ‘Tabook’ looks at the subject of sex in a fun loving way, highlighting the taboo that exists in society around embracing sexuality. It was crafted through digital 2D character animation (TVPaint) with paper art backgrounds, and a little bit of CG for the books.

    We have a 2D animated short film we wanted to share with you called The Blue & the Beyond.
    This film was completed last August and done entirely as a side project outside of school by members of San Jose State's Animation/Illustration program in California.
    If you like the film and would like to share this on your site, we would be greatly humbled and appreciative.
