The Weekend Shortlist

This weekend will be dedicated to hard working computer graphic animators! These 4 impressive individual CGI shorts give us a peak at how much time and effort it takes to make our favorite animated films which we usually take for granted. Look for the attention to detail and embrace it.

Have a great weekend!
