It - Short Animation - China
The short film depicts a protagonist full of "hallucinations", who always reveals his "beastly nature" at different points in time or under different events. \
These hallucinations orderly and progressively show the main character's "tiger head and snake tail" day...
The film is named "牠", pronounced "tā", which is a pronoun mainly used for animals. The author believes that the simple word "it" can explain the various animal forms that appear in the film.
The design of the characters and scenes in the story is relatively brief, and the screen design is mainly in simple black and white lines and some colorful embellishments, with no ups and downs in the plot setting. Through the freshness and curiosity of the changing images of people and animals, the story conveys the life feelings of the protagonist and tries to use the practice of animalizing the characters and personifying the animals to present a picture of the relationship between people and people, people and groups, and people themselves and groups themselves, etc. It is a metaphor for a complex public society and focuses on the social problems of people in terms of identity, position, rights, and collectivity.

The Lobster - Short Animation - USA
Here's the pinch, Daddy ate my pet lobster.
It's never easy to say out loud you have a phobia of seafood. It is not a preference or an ethical decision, but one defined by a visceral reaction I get from the smell and awareness of seafood around me.
I created The Lobster to help empathize with others with my experience. With Live action films, we often see performers who have a brand and voice they bring to their art. However, in animation, while still being specific with a character, there still is a level of abstraction that allows for enough non-representational qualities for the audience to subconsciously project and bring their own experience into the characters. This film is my attempt to bring some clarity to others about what I experience anytime a certain smell creeps into my nose.
