In a ravaged post-apocalyptic Earth of a distant future, an animated rag doll struggles to survive against the perils and the creatures of a monstrous world. To be more specific, the relentless Cat Beast, a towering and murderous automaton, is decimating 9's clan, and pretty soon, there will be no one left. The robot is after their proud souls and it is unstoppable. Is this the end of 9's people? Written by Nick Riganas

I saw this movie a couple of nights ago. They were showing all the academy award nominated short animations. This is probably one of my favorite styles of artwork, all grungy and cool and stuff. There's good storytelling involved too. It's basically about this little rag doll guy that tries to stop a monster that's destroying all of his kind. His name is 9. The animation is top quality. I only have a few critiques and it's that his movement stretched his texture a little more that the texture looked like it was meant to be. Also I think that the ground could have been a little better with added rocks and dirt clumps etc. The fact is, since those are the only flaws I can find, the movie must be pretty good. Except for my mildly critiquing eye (just because I'm into this stuff) I was completely absorbed in the movie. I love it and think anyone who's interested should watch it.
