Short Stack 3

Please enjoy the third installment of my weekly micro-series, Short Stack!


The Dam Keeper (2014)

Directed by Daisuke “Dice” Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo for Tonko House

This is a treat. For a very limited time, the folks over at Tonko House are putting up the full 20-minute short for free on YouTube. If you haven’t been able to see this film yet, now’s your chance! You have until May 3rd!

Update! It seems like it’ll be up a bit longer, likely while stay-at-home orders are largely in effect, so still check it out if you can!

And here’s a whole playlist from Tonko House’s fantastic YouTube channel about the making of The Dam Keeper:


Broken: Rock, Paper, Scissors (2014)

Directed by Gang Maria Yi, Garrett O’Neal, Bryan Locantore

Munro (1961)

Directed by Gene Deitch

Sadly, Gene Deitch passed away on April 16, 2020 at age 95. Cartoon Brew and Cartoon Research both have very lovely write-ups about his amazing life and long career in animation.
