THE GOAT THAT ATE TIME (Australia, 2007, 7 min.) Henry the goat has a voracious appetite, but he doesn’t have enough time to indulge in his favorite activity – eating. He attempts to solve his dilemma in this award-winning animated short by devouring time itself, in the form of watches and clocks! Directed by Lucinda Schreiber.
WISHFUL THINKING (USA, 2009, 5 min.) An imaginative three year old changes the theme of her traditional birthday party in this animation when she makes a wish and blows out the candles on her cake, much to the delirious delight of her seven tiny guests. Directed by Jane Sablow. Winner of the Bronze Remi Award, Houston International Film Festival.
CRAVINGS (USA, 2009, 2 min.) The brief journey of a very determined little girl to satisfy her rather surprising desire for fresh food is chronicled in this animated short. Directed by Jane Sablow. Winner of the Gold Remi Award, Houston International Film Festival.
SMART MACHINE (USA, 2009, 4 min.) A little boy’s unusual encounter with a vending machine during a family trip is captured in this animated short film. Directed by Jane Sablow. Winner of the Bronze Remi Award, Houston International Film Festival.
CHICKEN OF THE SEA (USA, 2009, 7 min.) The greater prairie chicken, a member of the grouse family, lives on the prairies of North America. Once, there was a lot of prairie and millions of greater prairie chickens. But there is still a little bit of prairie left, and if you go there in the spring to watch prairie chickens, you will see something wonderful, captured in this wildlife documentary. Directed and produced by Steve Furman.
