Late Afternoon: Oscar-nominated Short Animation

Late Afternoon” by Louise Bagnall is this year’s Academy Awards nominee in the category of “Best Short Animation”. I somehow prefer it over other nominees, and the frontrunners for the award are considered to be Pixar-produced animation “Bao” and Pixar-related short “Weekends“. Other nominees are touching “One Small Step” and the hilarious and witty “Animal Behaviour“. Normally I enjoy intricate, detailed animations, but, in the case of “Late Afternoon“, I somehow appreciate the simplicity and like how the animation incorporates the concept of memory. Have you watched this year’s nominees yet? Do you have a favourite?

    I have seen one small step and now late afternoon. I love them both. Its strange how animated shorts incite a deep impact on me than any other medium. The colours, the music.. This one was so beautiful. Im typing this while wiping my tears

      These two are definitely very emotional and One Small Step is also inspirational. I always try to follow short animations and how they do at festivals. It takes a real skill to say something profound and connect with the audience in a short time and I think these works deserve a bigger audience and recognition.

    I haven’t seen a single nominee. I really need to correct this.

    What a wonderful story. 😀 I haven’t seen any shorts since ‘Bao’ and that put me right off. I know it was a metaphor, by heavens to murgatriod, it was harrowing at the end there.
