Some wonderfully timed bits of business in there.

Brilliant piece of work - great link (the running panda gags cracked me up).

This was the running top video on a site I frequent for a week, truly excellent work. Some excerpts from the imdb trivia section:

# Jonas Geirnaert (then 21 years old) was a student animation and hadn't even graduated, when he came upon a registration form for the Cannes Festival on their site, decided he had nothing to lose and sent in his "graduation-work". He had told nobody, thinking he wouldn't even be selected anyway. To his surprise, he won in the category "Best Short Film".

# Geirnaert drew all of the animation (more than 9,000 drawings) himself. It took him two years. The sound however he had to prepare in less than half a day, because the deadline for sending in the work to Cannes had actually already expired.

# The version of the shortfilm that won the Jury Award at Cannes was an unfinished version.

I guess I should have made it more clear that this film won the short film category at Cannes several years ago.

That was really cute, especially the bit with the panda and the trampoline transport trucks.

That was really funny. I don't have speakers at work, but I still laughed.

I lost it at the trampoline truck part myself. Neat film.

Man. I read that as "flatfile" and I thought someone had made a film about spartan database management. And I was pretty excited.

I was on vacation when you first posted this and turned this thread up in my Yahoo search since I was thinking about posting it to the front page, too. I really enjoyed this short, crunchland!
