Get Happy

Continuing on from Friday’s post More by Mark Osborne is the very striking story of a lonely inventor who comes up with a device for making the world appear perfect. The animation is incredibly stylish and having New Order’s Elegia as soundtrack makes for an excellent short.

Nominiated by the Academy in 1998 and winning honours at Sundance in 1999. The animator has given lumps of plastecine a pathos and nobility that is missing from most mainstream productions.
