Batz is CG animated short which has a beautiful appeal of 2D animation. It's phenomenal in terms of it's visual style. Batz is fast paced, funny and yet a little darker toons film. Besides it's visual appeal, there's more that catches your attention. The compositions in Batz are impactful. Even though Batz is fast paced and has stylish cinematography, both never get in the way of storytelling.
It's a story of 2 little bats who have nothing in common but they share a rapid journey. It ends up being a memorable journey for both of them.
Another remarkable thing about Batz project is, it successfully raised £17,917 on Kickstarter. Batz was in the official selection of almost 25 festivals around the world out of which it won First prize at the Manlleu Festival in Spain, in animation category.

Belgian public bus company De Lijn wanted to show the advantages of public transport. Advertising agency Duval Guillaume came up with a great idea and wanted a Pixar-quality execution. Creative Conspiracy took up the challenge and delivered this series of comical, animal-themed vignettes for the campaign.
Here is a really amazing animated commercial produced, I believe, in cross collaboration between Wizz Design and Unit Image for Michelin Tires.
The advertisement is mind blowing because of the attention to detail. Its not just the work that has gone into the main actions, characters and story but take a closer look at the design of the environmental and models which are also really appealing.
Now take a look at the characters that are animated in the background aswell as the main character. The details that have gone into this production is really high quality.
The Rise and Fall of Globosome is a short film with a very stunning Graphic and VFX. I really love the cinematography, the concept design and the notion behind the film itself. Furthermore, the animation is also very well done. Here is the idea of the short film as it is cited from the film's Vimeo page:
In the vastness of space, there's a a small speck of rock inhabited by the most peculiar lifeforms: Dark little "Globosomes" that start to replicate fast and begin to show signs of intelligence. The film tells the story of the rise and fall of these little creatures. This film is inspired by the special times we're living in on our own planet. We're ourselves at the crossroads: Rise to our true calling and explore the universe or perish from the face of a dirty planet. Surely we have culture, science and art but what does remains of these achievements, if you look at our world from a global perspective.
The Rise and Fall of Globosome is Written and Directed by Sascha Geddert. (Full Credit here). I also found out that they developed a mobile game app 2 years following the release of the short film. The gameplay can be seen on the video below:
Last but not least is a video of the Making of Globosome. Hope you enjoy it!
