Animation Spotlight

Every so often we come across some beautiful and unique animated shorts online that truly deserve to be seen by as many people as possible. If you ever find yourself wondering where the future employees of Pixar, Dreamworks and Disney are going to come from, look no further. Some of these shorts have been online for a year or two but many are new to us and I suspect some may be new to you as well.
