This is great thread! It's very inspiring to see all these wonderful animations! Allow me to make some contributions also:
A classic stop-motion animation by Yuri Norstein:
Chinese animation in the 1980s were at its best. This is an example. But nowadays they just copy other countries... so sad
Here's a Japanese animator at work:
Oh man I'm so pumped this thread is still going!
Dy.laneA I LOVE that piece. Williams is just too good.
Anyways, one of my favorite studios, Cartoon Saloon, who's Secret of Kells was just nominated for the Oscar, released a visual trailer for their next feature! I eagerly await it.
Armobot: Yuri is amazeing! I love his stuff!
Bendragon: Looks like it, was really cool seeing him at work checking and rechecking everything.
Katezila: Ya he is amazeing, left a nice gift for all the animators to study. I gota check out Secret of Kells. Be cool if it cmae here for a limited theater reales
peter foldes "Hunger"
Really admire Mamoru Hosoda for his films "The Girl who Leapt Though Time" and "Summer Wars" infact summer wars was basically the thing that made me go. "I wana do this!"
Here is an ending he directed for an anime, I really like the simple idea and design. He handles alot of things this way
I'm really surprised I havnt shared this yet considering I watch it very frequently. Same guy directing it Mamoru Hosoda.

thanks for sharing all of those. some took my breath away and inspired me so much that i actualy built a lightbox and started animating my drawings this week.
Here's a third year calarts' student short film. i just love this raw animations. so much skill and "magic" on this one.
Voices From A Distant Star - a short film made entirely by Makoto Shinkai who some dub the next Miyazaki. The other 2 parts are on youtube too. It will be linked somewhere on its youtube page.
More of his work:
Yeah I love this guy
Awww the thread got stickied! I should really come on here more.
So many awesome things posted!
To anyone wondering about Gobelins, since they've popped up a few times here. What I know of it is they're a school in France with a very intense entrance exam. Many of the students there have prior education or industry experience. I think they're easily the finest school in the world right now.
Every year there students make a few signal films for the Annecy Animation Festival, and they're always a fantastic example of good film making and concept in just 30 seconds.
You can watch all of the student work at the schools site, it just only seems to show in french so it's a jungle to get through.
After The Rain is my favorite.
