Strange Oaks is the latest teaser trailer from the Barcelona-based Headless Productions (and friends), this time about a retirement community for witches. The Headless Productions Vimeo account has 13 more teasers and trailers, mostly featuring hand-drawn animation, some of which has since made its way into full movies.

I had seen a couple of these before but somehow hadn't connected them together as being from the same people.

These are all amazing. The animation is some of the best I've seen. None of it looks quite like traditional animation, though: is it flash, or some kind of animation software along those lines? Looking forward to Dad's Missing Head, which looks reminiscent of the Triplets of Belleville.

Very little animation is done with painted cels these days, so yes, I expect they use some animation software, for inking and colouring at least, though it doesn't look like they rely on automated tweening and symbol libraries to the extent you see in cheaper animation.

They are from Spain, so it makes sense they would have a European style more in common with Triplets than with the Cal Arts style you get with most Hollywood animation.

Also there's a mistake in the post. The link for I'm a Monster should maybe be this instead.
