It’s that time of the year. Turkey Day is tomorrow! Time to gather around with family and give thanks for the things we love most in life… Or we can just goof around in front of a computer and watch videos about turkeys and other food-related stuff. Shall we?
A Thanksgiving Pardon
Let’s begin with a five-second film from 5-Second Films.
Happy Thanksgiving, Turkey.
An amusing short film from the folks at Taste Test, Happy Thanksgiving Turkey enters on an innocent turkey just going about his everyday suburban life, having forgotten that today is Thanksgiving. What follows is nothing short of goofy, in a good way. The crew behind this clearly had a lot of fun making this video, and that makes me enjoy it even more.
What’s that? You wanted something a little longer? All right…
Continuing on our pilgrim-versus-turkey theme, Jonathan Soto provides a funny CG short involving a turkey running for his life. It may not be the most polished CGI I’ve ever seen, but it’s very well animated and a lot of fun to watch.
Another animation following turkeys trying to escape certain doom, this time from the animator Naz Ghodrati-Azadi. I’m very impressed with the art-direction, animation and voice-acting of this one.
What? You wanted something a little longer? All right…
And now for something completely different! Originally made for an animation showcase held by Oof Collective, Harvey Benschoter takes a ton of stock images and… does very strange things with them. It’s really weird, but I like really weird, so here we go!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I’ll be taking a break on Friday, but don’t worry. I’ll be back on Monday with something new. Take care!
