Animate Me: The Shorts Program
Sunday night, the Oscar for Best Animated Short Subject went to a Belgian project called "Mr. Hublot." Most people probably had not seen it, but Chris Garcia had -- because he'd selected it as part of Cinequest's Shorts Program, Animate Me. With a title reminiscent of Jacques Tati's Mr. Hulot, this poignant short explains what happens when an OCD mechanical man opens his clockwork heart to a mechanical dog. It's pretty cool.
You can see this animated short here, and then on the big screen with the rest of the program on Thursday , March 6 at 9:30 p.m. at Camera 12, Saturday, March 8 at 11 a.m. and Friday, March 12 at 1:45 p.m. at Camera 12! Tickets are available here!
