These animated shorts will clear your head (The External World), blow your mind (Dromosphere) or at the very least make you a bit more organized (Pixels) . . . kinda. They run the gamut of CGI, hand-drawn, motion graphics and live action/animation hybrids. Get with this program!

The Cap
Amid the turbulent partition of India in 1947, a young Hindu boy has a chance encounter with a stranger. (Arjun Rihan, USA/India 2009, 6 min) This is a Cinema by the Bay film.

Dromosphere
Some may remember Thorsten Fleisch as the director of the incredible short Energy! (SFIFF 2008). Here, he again de-familiarizes an everyday object in the most amazing way, with a combination of high-speed photography and CGI (we think). (Thorsten Fleisch, Germany 2010, 11 min) In GGA competition.

The External World
David O’Reilly has established a style unto himself, one that ingeniously borrows from and resituates classic storytelling and animation styles in unexpectedly absurd ways. (David O’Reilly, Ireland/Germany 2010, 15 min) In GGA competition.

Get with the Program
This program’s titular short ensures it all makes sense, answering two age-old conundrums: “Tell me why my love is hot” and “Should I have a cell phone attached directly to my head?” (Jennifer Drummond Deutrom, USA 2010, 4 min) In GGA competition.

Hail
The wonderful Emily Hubley offers a new hand-drawn music video for band Hamell on Trial in her trademark style. (Emily Hubley, USA 2011, 3 min)

Pixels
A hybrid of live action and CGI explores the implications of making the entire world into a massively complicated video game extravaganza. (Patrick Jean, France 2010, 3 min) In GGA competition.

A Purpleman
An eye-opening animated interview with a North Korean émigré about a new life of alienation and consumption in South Korea. (Kim Tak-hoon, Yoo Jin-young, Ryu Jin-young, Park Sung-ho, South Korea 2010, 14 min) In GGA competition.

Self Portrait as a PowerPoint Proposal for an Amusement Park Ride
Not so much animation as motion graphics, this entirely text-based narrative is as engaging as it is ridiculous. (Jonn Herschend, USA 2010, 6 min) In GGA competition. This is a Cinema by the Bay film.

Sync
Reminiscent of John Whitney’s famous animated mandalas, Max Hattler’s work presents a hypnotic, ever-expanding and -contracting series of concentric circles. (Max Hattler, England 2010, 10 min)

—Sean Uyehara

Total running time 72 min. Presented in association with Cartoon Art Museum.
