Friday Night Flicks: Fresh Guacamole and Honda “Paper” by PES

Last week’s flicks featured some of the earliest forms of animation. Tonight’s two videos feature work by contemporary stop-motion animator PES.

Fresh Guacamole, at a total length of one minute and forty seconds, is the shortest film ever nominated for an Academy Award.



Slightly longer (one minute, fifty seven seconds), there were no Academy nominations for  Honda “Paper” since it is an advertisement. It did get lots of recognition.
