Eleven (HD 2010) – Operative 4511 is a space marine on his own and outnumbered. Sometimes the voice you reach at the other end of the comm can mean the difference between life and death! ‘Eleven’ plays with the visual style of fps video game cut scenes that were popular when it was conceived.

Nominated for an Oscar and for a BAFTA award, Jasper Morello is a short feature made in a unique style of silhouette animation developed by director Anthony Lucas and inspired by the work of authors Edgar Alan Poe and Jules Verne. In the frontier city of Carpathia, Jasper Morello discovers that his former adversary Doctor Claude Belgon has returned from the grave. When Claude reveals that he knows the location of the ancient city of Alto Mea where the secrets of life have been discovered, Jasper cannot resist the temptation to bring his own dead wife Amelia back. But they are captured by Armand Forgette, leader of the radical Horizontalist anti-technology movement, who is determined to reanimate his terrorist father Vasco. As lightning energises the arcane machineries of life in the floating castle of Alto Mea, Jasper must choose between having his beloved restored or seeing the government of Gothia destroyed. Set in a world of iron dirigibles and steam powered computers, this gothic horror mystery tells the story of Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator who flees his Plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself.
Also winner of the Grand Prix award at the Annecy Animation Festival, Jasper has also won the top honours at the Canadian Film Centre’s Worldwide Short Film Festival, Best Animation at Flickerfest 2005, Best Animation at the Sydney Film Festival Dendy awards and Best Animation at Toronto worldwide shorts.

If you’re a Mortal Kombat fan, yesterday was Christmas. That’s because an awesome short film called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth hit the net and it featured a gritty, real world approach to the material. Featuring Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, martial artists Lateef Crowder, Ian Anthony Dale and Matt Mullins, the short film has been getting nothing but positive write-ups across the cyberspace. You really should check it out.
But the big story was what was the purpose and who made the short. Some guessed it was for an unannounced feature film, and others thought it might be for a new Mortal Kombat game.
When word got out it was directed by Kevin Tancharoen (Fame), I was kind of stunned. After all, who would have thought the guy who made Fame would have directed an awesome Mortal Kombat short

Written and directed by Adrien Merigeau.
A young wolf decides to confront his father, whom he has not seen since he was a child.
Programmer’s Notes: Premiering in the Animation Showcase of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, we are extremely pleased to present Adrien Merigeau’s (http://oldfangs.blogspot.com/) poetic ode to familial legacy. Working with collaborator Alan Holly and the support of Irish animation arm Cartoon Saloon, Merigeau and company set out to create a hierarchy free-environment, in which all creative forces are free to do what they feel is best. What results is a film that looks and sounds like all their friends. In fact, the score was even composed and performed by Adrien’s own parents! The programming staff kindly invites you to experience ‘old fangs,’ and take note of an emerging talent making his Festival debut.
