I've been fighting the inevitable, but it's no use anymore. Today I cave; I've created an "animation" category. Because I'm an enormous nerd.
Seriously though, how kick-ass is this short film? I'm pretty sure it's all hand drawn, or maybe this guy is exceptional at masking his CG work. Either way, it's awesome. Via Drawn.
Also worth checking out is this equally kick-ass short, a beautifully designed sci-fi-noir misadventure.
There's nothing worse than seeing something animated that might as well have been shot live action. Both of these films are doing exactly what animation should be doing.
