Also, if you want to see some great animated short stories, check out this site: Late Night Work Club
"Late Night Work Club is a loose, rotating collective of indie animators. That is, animators who do independent, non-commercial work. It’s an excuse to bring a whole bunch of us together and make something great, and also to promote the work of the artists involved.
Some of the best, most personal, experimental and vital animation going right now is happening on the internet.
It’s being made late at night when other people have gone to sleep and on weekends when everyone else is out.
It’s being made by students, freelancers, full-timers and folks with unrelated day jobs. It means something to us.

I recently discovered another interesting Kickstarter project by 2 Disney Veterans. "It's a story about an 11-year-old, meticulous boy, WALT, and his crazy, loopy GRANDPA -- two complete opposites -- who get stuck in a vast, imaginative WORLD OF PAINTINGS. Inside, they cross paths with a ruthless painted character determined to make it into our world. In order to get home and stop the villain, Walt and Grandpa have to set aside their differences, work together and navigate worlds where the rules can change around every corner."
