A boy letting go of his kite is a metaphor for life

Sometimes you should fight for what you love and keep on trying to make things work and never stop chasing it down but once that’s over and you’ve reached your limit or realized the expiration date already hit, you should let it go. Life works better that way. And in this short animation, a boy realizes that with his… » 7/23/15 5:55pm 7/23/15 5:55pm

What happens when your best friend catches you trying to kill yourself

There’s a lot of things to consider when you commit suicide. How you’ll do it, what you’ll write in the note, who you have to consider, and so on. It’s a logistical nightmare! And things will get worse once your best friends catch wind of your plan too because they’ll hilariously blow holes and expose embarrassing… » 7/16/15 1:26am 7/16/15 1:26am

Short film: Having a one-minute time machine is hilariously useful

Here’s the problem with time travel, we always dream too big and think about going back in time to see dinosaurs (they’ll eat you) or gladiators (they’ll kill you) or other important moments in history (they’ll all be racist). Fact: Life sucked back then! You wouldn’t want to go back. It’s way better to go back one… » 7/09/15 2:26am 7/09/15 2:26am

Cute short shows a digital animation vs a traditional drawing

Digital animations are great! But so are more traditional drawings! This cute short film by Nata Metlukh pits a digital animation against a traditional drawing and we see the strengths and weaknesses of each as they battle for supremacy.

Short film: R2-D2 adorably falls in love with a blue mailbox

Say it with me: awwwww. In a story that's a little like the first hour of Wall-E, this short film, Artoo In Love by Evan Atherton, tells a cute love story of R2-D2 and a blue mailbox. R2 starts holding picnics with it, zaps away people who want to mail things and holds an umbrella over its head when it rains. » 3/31/15 10:33pm 3/31/15 10:33pm

Watch more cute monster animation drawings get inserted into daily life

I just love the fake cartoon reality that augmented reality artist Marty Cooper creates within our world because his character drawings pack so much personality that I just want them to be real. Here he is with part three in his Aug(de)mented Reality series, which splices crazy cute monster drawings into normal… » 3/24/15 10:30pm 3/24/15 10:30pm

This is the cutest (and possibly smallest) 3D printed drill in the world

Lance Abernethy, a maintenance engineer from Auckland, New Zealand, 3D printed a cordless drill that measures 0.67 inches (17mm) tall, 0.27 inches (7.5mm) wide, and 0.5 inches (13mm) long and holds a 0.02 inches (0.5mm) twist drill. Not happy with that, he is already working on a smaller version. » 3/19/15 9:57am 3/19/15 9:57am

This is what 8-year-old boys do when they're told to slap a girl

The public service announcement is emotionally manipulative and strategically pulls at the most basic things everyone likes (cute kids! young love!) and might even be scripted and is definitely edited nicely but still, the message is something that even children know to be true: Domestic violence is not okay. » 1/08/15 9:57pm 1/08/15 9:57pm

What it must be like being inside a kid's imagination

Here's a cute video that I hope turns into an entire series: imagining what's inside a kid's, well, imagination. The video starts off with the toddler waving a stick as he runs around (as kids tend to do) and then transforms into a level of Super Mario Bros. Being a kid is awesome. We just see the stick, they see… » 1/08/15 2:17am 1/08/15 2:17am

Cute love story animated completely with latte art

Follow along this spot that uses 1,000 cups of latte to show love. » 12/27/14 12:58am 12/27/14 12:58am

Short film: What happens when plastic toys go to war

This wonderfully made animation plays up war as something that's actually fun. There are guns that shoot out flowers and grenades that are actually caramel apple lollipops. But because war is actually a horrific thing, the short film takes a dark turn. If only it were always flowers and lollipops. » 11/26/14 11:57pm 11/26/14 11:57pm

Tiny hamster eating too much tiny Thanksgiving food is just so cute

I love Thanksgiving. Family and food and football and more food and Fall and friends and even more food. And though all of that makes me smile, nothing captures the essence of holiday better than this tiny hamster: it ate so much tiny Thanksgiving food that you can see the guilt and worry on its face. » 11/18/14 11:10pm 11/18/14 11:10pm
