Celebrating digital film culture

Our wonderful nature is a hilarious 5-minute animation about the mating rituals of the water shrew. The action starts at around 1:30. Other gems found at the bitfilm 08 Digital Film Festival include "The post-it note prison".

Is Isabella Rosellini involved? Because I've become accustomed to having her star in all of my mating ritual film watching experiences...

Anthropomorphizing woodland creatures with the power of computer animation! Why don't the big studios think of this stuff??

I hate that fucking mouse. Also, Ricky Martin needs an editor to correct his spelling mistakes.

Also, the Realtime category has some real winners, including the excellent Lifeforce by Andromeda Software Development. Also on the site is "debris", which fits in just 177 kilobytes of code and data.

Unfortunately, this site's video player isn't really high-quality enough to do these demos justice — if you have Windows and a fairly recent graphics card, make sure to download the executable versions and try them out in high resolution. If not, capped.tv has decent quality captures available.
