Ryan – animated short by Chris Landreth, 2005 Academy Award Winner

Ryan, staring the life and work of animator Ryan Larkin, is a very worthy animation with an even more interesting supporting documentary showcasing the making of it. Ryan, uses supplemental or secondary animations to represent the psyche of the characters as you traverse through the story. The direct correlation between the dialogue and the subsequent illustrations of emotion are quite neat. This is especially true of the main character, Ryan seen here as merely a skeleton.
