The animated short Sun-Knapping was put together at ESMA (Ecole Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques in Montpellier, France) by Martial Fontan, Guillaume Hoffmann, Boris Kaufmann, and Deborah Yver.

Journey into the Metaverse

This Machinema, titled Journey into the Metaverse, won all the awards when it was released in 2011, and well it should have. It is a truly unique piece of video production, and is worth adding to your permanent collections.

When Marnie Was There English trailer

Studio Ghibli has produced some amazing animations in its history, and it looks like When Marnie Was There is yet another in a long line of triumphs. The box office results in Japan were poor for this one, but the critical reaction was positive to the point of acclaim, and this is another beautiful feature [...]
