OSCAR ANIMATIONS - 1

Some of the most recent Oscar winning short animations.


Paperman

Piper by Alan Barillaro (2016) (USA) (6m) *

Piper won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2017. It is a sweet story about a young piper (bird) learning how to feed on the beach and, with the help of a young crab, discovering that there is a better way to pinpoint its food. The computer animation - which at times is indistinguishable from live action - is beautifully done and a faux documentary camera style gives it a sense of realism.


Bear Story by Gabriel Osorio (2014) (Chile) (10m) *

Bear Story (Historia de un Oso) won the Oscar for Best Short Animation in 2015 and is a fine example: dialogue-free, beautiful and sentimental. It also has a strong message - that animals should not be stolen from their habitat and made to perform in circuses. The continued enslavement and murder of animals is indeed the greatest crime in human history. Bear Story follows a bear who has created a mechanical diorama telling the story of a circus bear who was torn away from his wife and child.


Paperman

Feast by Patrick Osborne (2014) (USA) (7m) *

Proving that the Academy is made up of dog lovers, Feast, like Mr Hublot, has a dog at the centre of the story. Its director, Patrick Osborne, had also worked on Disney's recent Oscar-winning short animation, Paperman, so it was always likely to fare well. Winston is a dog living on the street until he is taken in by a couple who work at a restaurant. Despite apparently horribly overfeeding him, Winston maintains a healthy weight and when the couple's relationship hits the rock only he can save it.


Paperman

Mr Hublot by Laurent Witz (2013) (France/Lux) (11m) *

Mr Hublot won the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2014. It tells the story of the routine obsessed Mr Hublot, who lives in a robotic world. He spends his time alone until he rescues an abandoned robot dog. The only problem is that the dog grows to a huge size and, when he breaks the television, it seems the situation is impossible to continue. Mr Hublot has to make a hard decision. It is a simple story about the love between a man and his dog.
