The BYU Shorts


Jeff, the all time super ultra mega fighter turbo champion, takes great pleasure crushing the opposition beneath his sandals like so many discarded potato chips. After many long days searching the internet he finds, at last, a worthy foe.

Brigham Young University has had a going animation program for a while now, and they've put up a batch of shorts at the well-loved Vimeo. You can see it here, along with the remaining dozen.

Owned will (likely) have resonance with males in what's now called "the key demographic".

Not bad for something out of BYU (clever ending). Didn't know they just started an animation program.

They've had it, I think, for a while now.

I checked their Vimeo page and saw their earliest work goes back to 2002-2003.

Thirteen years! That's three-plus classes of budding cartoon creators!

I wonder how much of the start of the program was inspired by Don Bluth being a BYU grad himelf?
