Synopsis
A simple and stylish animated film by Sandra Boynton that features an all-out Broadway number performed by overambitious bovines, and a song performed by The Seldom Herd, an enthusiastic albeit fictitious musical group. A delightful romp for children and adults.
 
Director’s Statement: Sandra Boynton
 
COWS is my very first solo animation. I went about this using a probably peculiar animation technique: I drew the art outlines by hand, then created WAY too many colored stills, then imported them all into Final Cut for editing. It’s cel animation of a sort. I had a great time puzzling out the basics of how animation works, and I hope the somewhat primitive animation style of COWS is part of its peculiar charm.

Director’s Statement: Eric Montchaud
 
One day my son found the illustrated book by Isabelle Carrier in the back of the library and he asked me to read it. I immediately knew that I wanted to make a film. I knew this character — I saw him move, and all I wanted to do was share Isabelle’s story. So I contacted her, and to my great joy, she was at once delighted and disturbed to see Anatole freed from the pages of her book.

Synopsis
The story of an aggressive woodpecker and some unsuspecting ants who live in the same tree. One day danger approaches and they must work as a team if they are to survive.
 
Director’s Statement: Dmitry Vysotskiy
 
Thinking over the film, I found inspiration in an ordi- nary common piece of nature. An ant was climbing a branch, appearing and disappearing during his circular movement. I just imagined the rhythmical sound for this. And this idea laid the foundation for the whole film — a story based on different rhythmical noises performed by the bird, ants, and a lumberjack.

Synopsis
The story of Pig and Fox — who become best friends despite schoolmates who bully them, the indifference of adults and the ever-present threat of a cloud of pollution that only Pig can keep from destroying the town. Traditional hand-drawn figures combined with digital painting bring this sweet fable to life.
 
Directors’ Statement: Robert Kondo, Dice Tsutsumi
 
Toward the end of production on Monsters University, we decided to take time off from being art directors at Pixar to make a short film. Our goal creatively was to tell an emotional story about a character that changes the way he sees the world, rather than the world around him changing. We were naively thinking we could finish the whole thing in three months. We thought we knew how animated film- making worked, but felt like every day we were putting out a fire. We really grew as filmmakers and as artists, and now we don’t want to stop.
