Making commercial movies is easy when compared to the 3D animation short films. Even though they are short in length, these short films contain all the mixed emotions like sadness, happiness, villain, hero etc that one can find in a full length movie. 3D Short films have their own story to tell and it’s targeted for all adults and children. What makes it fun is the 3D version because of their mind blowing effects and animation. If you are looking for inspiration for your next 3d short film, go through our amazing collection of videos and movies.

Shelley Page says: This wonderful film, about a young man who looks back over his year of national service as a paramedic, was directed by Johannes Schiehsl of Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. This is my personal favourite from the graduation films of the past year or two, and is by turns funny, touching, disturbing and ultimately very moving. The story has an added depth because it’s based on the director’s personal experiences. The quality of the storyboarding, animation and production design...
Fancy dodging work for a couple of minutes? Then check out this fun short by School of Visual Arts students Donia Liechti and Vicky Penzes
El Monstruo is one of those animations you see and completely forget why you are watching it. It holds a real nostalgia value and romance, not just to animators but many viewers. You’d be forgiven for thinking this is a cardboard stop-motion piece, when it is in actual fact all CG, created in Maya and rendered with Arnold. Technically the work is superb, with love and craftsmanship in each shot but really it’s the feel of the piece that makes it so lovely.
Created by London-based independent production company and animation studio Nexus Productions, the 30-second ad features a young girl who dreams about the things most people take for granted in life: love, security and comfort.
This new 30-second animation from international media studio Kompost introduces Viggle.

This UDK animation was created a while ago, but I was reminded of it when I was looking at Baolong’s Drogo portrait recently in issue 161 (see below the animation link for more about Drogo). Baolong works in the videogames industry, and previously was an environment artist for nine years, until 2010, when he started creating characters for games.
Aardman combined 2D and 3D seamlessly in this promo for folk trio The Staves. Bristol-based animation studio Aardman recently collaborated with Atlantic and folk trio The Staves to create this music promo for the band’s ‘Winter Trees’ single.
This was the beginning of my struggle to make Express. I had been working as an animator for years, but never as a director. Everything was new to me. Not only as a director, but also, I was still working as a chief animator at Transistor Studio in Tokyo. My schedule was packed with other works, but my desire to work with Takayama was overwhelming.
Italian VFX studio Fab Design used Blender to create this spot for YellowRibbon, a new kind of messenger app. YellowRibbon is a messenger app with a difference. Developer MagnaLab designed the application based on the concept that not all messages need to be instant.
Did this piece for an exhibition at the Gladstone hotel in Toronto, which was showcasing some of my work. As one long move, it's hardly Kubrick but was fun to make, and a good chance to test drive Vray on a longer form animation. If you enjoy staring at a single painting in a gallery for hours on end, you probably love this.
