    Animated movies/shorts done by one person

    Hi there.
    Does anyone knows of any good animated movie or short done entirely (or mostly) by a single person?
    Cencoroll would be a good example.

    All of Don Hertzfeldt's stuff is close. He has people that help him with music, editing, and voices, but he does all the writing/animation/effects/etc himself. And all of his shorts are great: "Rejected" is a cult hit, and "Everything Will Be OK" and "The Meaning of Life" are quite powerful.

    Chris Jones made "The Passenger" entirely on his own, including music.

    Also, "Voices of a Distant Star." It's not quite a one-man show (his wife helped him with voices, and the short was re-dubbed professionally for wide release) but it's very nearly. And the quality is sky-high amazing for one dude.

    That's what I can think of off the top of my head.

    All of Bill Plympton's early work was done pretty much solo.

    Nina Paley did "Sita sings the blues" all herself except for the music and some voices. You can see all the animation for free on official website.

    Also "Pale Cocoon" anime was done by one person - Yasuhiro Yoshiura (also except for the music and voices).
