Blog Post #10 – Bunnies!

Yes, Spring is in the air and we all love that big basket of goodies from the Easter Bunny.  While reading some of my tweets this week I came across a link to some animation that sent me in to hysterical laughter … parodies of movies enacted by animated bunnies!  These 30 second animated movie shorts by Angry Alien are funny and actually capture the essence of each movie movie they parody.

Jennifer Shiman started Angry Alien Productions with her creations in 1998.  She uses Adobe Flash for coloring and animation after scanning her hand drawn characters into Adobe Photoshop.  She originally sketched a range of characters for her classic movies in 30 seconds …kittens, beavers, mice, elves …but the bunnies struck her as the perfect actor.

There is a large collection of movies that have been bunnified for your entertainment: new movies, old movies, horror, comedy,  action/adventure, drama.

Angry Alien Productions has produced Bunny Shorts for the Starz network.  In 2008 the 30-Second Bunnies Theatre won two Webby Awards for Online Film and Video/Animation, plus the People’s Voice award in that category.

You can find more of the 30 Second Bunnies Theater Library  and information about Angry Alien Productions on their website.

I have commented on the blogs of Christopher DeMarco and Gerard Thomas.

  1. I enjoy watching parodies because it is always interesting to see artists poke fun at pop culture as well as popular figures. I am artistically and technology challenged so I didn’t realize that artists could scan their drawings into Adobe Photoshop to create animations. Using bunnies to cover popular movies in 30 seconds is an interesting concept however the shorts are hard to follow if you have never seen the movies. I have never seen Twilight so I have no idea what is going on in the 30 second condensed cover of the film. However I have seen Casablanca and therefore I am able to follow the storyline in the 30 second clip, which does effectively sum up the movie. This blog has motivated me to seek out other Funny Bunny shorts of movies I have seen to see if they are as effective at summarizing the storylines.
