Skhizein

This was should have been nominated for an Oscar a little while back. And for good reason. It's really just brilliant.

Got to see this at a local film festival a couple of years ago. It definitely stood out as it was so much better than all the other drivel surrounding it that I thought it was brilliant...and still do. Such a fun idea to turn into an animated short.

Brilliant storytelling and beautiful animation! Fantastic.

I may be off but I don't think this was nominated for an Oscar. I remember loving it in festivals and I was shocked when it wasn't nominated.

Thank you for posting this! I saw this in San Francisco when the 2009 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts were playing at a local theatre. I've been trying to find it since then and could never remember the title!

yep, I saw it at Animest a while ago, here in Bucharest. And I totally agree, this should have had an Oscar nomination, at least! :) One of the smartest and most interesting animated films ever made.

This was the best short I saw in a long time!
