I love CGI animated films. To a lesser extent I also love CGI animated short films (get it?). It’s a great avenue for talented and creative filmmakers to showcase their skills – as well as a welcome distraction for those of us in the daily rat race.

But this is isn’t about rats – it’s about pigeons, those “rats with wings” and the potential global devastation they may cause in their relentless pursuit for your bread crumbs. Such is the premise of a great animated short we’ve stumbled upon, entitled Pigeon Impossible.

Thanks to our reader “Frisco D.G.,” we were able to discover this smile-inducing short film by Lucas Martell, who wrote, directed and produced Pigeon Impossible. The film took Martell about five years to finish, and his first foray into animation.

Here’s a quote from Martell about making the film, courtesy of the Pigeon Impossible official website:

“When the project started, it was mostly an excuse to learn 3D animation, but by the end of the project I had spent so much time reworking and polishing the story that I just wanted people to laugh.”

The film debuted on May 7, 2009 – shame it only popped up on our radar now. So, better late than never, I give you Pigeon Impossible:

Again – films like this are why I hold animated features in such high regard. How do you not smile at a movie like this?

Pigeon Impossible might be Martell’s first animated project, but judging by the end result, he has a bright future in the medium if he chooses to continue in it.

What did you think of the film?
