Floyd The Android

Jonathan Lyons, San Rafael, CA,. Animation, 4:00, Brooklyn Premiere!


Floyd the Android is an animated robot who gets into crazy situations, but always manages a clever escape. The project is actually two very short films combined to give a broader view of his world. In 'iPorter' he plays with a novelty teleporter, and gets thoroughly beside himself. In 'Dim Bulb' he attempts to change the light bulb at the very top of the highest skyscraper on earth. When he falls, his only hope is a 30 foot tall rubber chicken.

Guard Dog Global Jam

In 2005, Bill Plympton created the Oscar nominated animated short, 'Guard Dog', about a pug dog who imagines every flora and fauna is out to kill his beloved master. In 2010, he decided to remake the film via the internet, with 70 artists from around the world, with different levels of expertise, recreating each shot of the film in their own style.

Place Stamp Here

Joy Vaccese, Noelle Melody, Astoria NY, Animation, 4:30

This is a story about a girl and a medium-sized black dog. Through their travels and experiences, they give away little pieces of themselves but collect, in return, those myriad elements that become their new, but still somehow perfect selves. They are never quite the same as when they started. Then again, neither is the world.

Delilah, Before
