Pinnipedes – Incredible animated short

Here’s something I saw and immediately wanted to share with everyone I know. Happily I have this website as a platform to do so! This is a 3D animation project by director and animator Victor Caire. Cited by the man himself as his first animation project this is an incredible and hilarious film.

In both look and tone it very much reminds me of Pixar, but also the classic Looney Tunes cartoons. The blend of realism and cartoonish exaggeration is perfectly balanced, and when the first creature (both of which seem to be based on the Southern Elephant Seal) stares angrily at the camera at around the 45 second mark, it’s just like the best angry Daffy Duck faces.

Give it a watch, I promise you’ll be smiling big for a good half hour afterwards.
