Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty

12 Mar

Personally, out of all the contenders for Best Animated Short, I found this one to be the most compelling (disregarding Wallace & Gromit since I haven’t seen that one yet).   Visually, it’s interesting because of the back-and-forth between different styles of animation and tone that contrasts “real-life” and “storymode”.  The narration and characterization is just captivating — Granny Grimm actually reminds me of my grandmother when she use to tell us stories.  Granted, I actually use to beg her to tell us a particular witch story before sleeping at night — even though it freaked the heck out of me and got me all jumpy and paranoid — but this poor girl looks like she’s actually dreading “story time” with Granny, lol.

Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty – directed by Nicky Phelan, produced by Brown Bag Films, and written/voiced by Kathleen O’Rourke:
