1. Werebeast


    Werebeast is a 2D animated short created by Welsh animator James Lancett for the Nickelodeon International Animated Shorts Program 2014/15. Lancett was one of only a handful of directors to be selected for the Nickelodeon Animated Shorts Program. He worked with BAFTA-nominated creative studio Blink Industries, a small group of animators, designers, musicians and actors to produce the short.

    In a place where everyone is half animal and half human, we follow the lively Ollie Oswald as he desperately tries to impress the very beautiful and cool Signa. When his flawless dance moves don’t work on her, he raids his Uncle Sebastian’s cologne cupboard. But strange things happen when the surefire “Essence of Desire” fragrance turns out to have some undesirable effects.

    James Lancett is an animation director and illustrator currently living and working in London. He studied illustration and animation at Kingston University. Lancett got people’s attention with his graduation film, Overcast. Which, among other honours, earned him a finalists place for Adobe Design Achievement Awards 2011.
