    Nicolas Schmerkin is not the director but the producer of Logorama. By the way, he’s french…

  • I loved Logorama, the others also, but that one really stood out for me above the others.

  • nice video!.

  • I just saw Logorama in French and was amazed, it’s an incredible short film…

  • All these animated shorts are worthy of their nominee status, but possibly the most amusing video in the post is the “making of…” video. The insight into filming is interesting.

  • Loved Logorama, witty and brilliantly executed.

  • super nice video…

  • I loved Logorama,

  • Great post. Logorama was superb!

  • Ah man I will have to search for logorama as the video been taking down and I haven’t seen it!

    From what I have seen.. I love French Roast and A Matter of Loaf & Death.

    French Roast for its technique character and morals, A Matter of Loaf & Death for its cultural reference to British Tradition and wit.

    Good stuff overall!

  • Found Logorama… incredible!

    Must say.. in response to Jamie Northrup saying Logorama stood out, I think apart of that effect is the fact its Logo based?

    Psychologically we remember Logo more because of there simplicity better yet there have a permanent place in our nostalgic memory and everyday life (we cant get away from them)!

    Where as these other animations (although based on reality in some form) are really great but there creating there on visual representation in our existence.. does anyone get what I mean? lol

    Was just a thought..

    Anyway thanks for sharing, enjoyed and was inspired by all, for all different reasons.

    Thank God for Art..
