The Pitch: While the design might not be as fine tuned, this computer animated short film by Julien Bocabeille is certainly on level with the last few Pixar shorts. To escape the clutches of a skilled cook, two octopuses engage in a burlesque race. Yet despite they successfully escape their fatal destiny, their struggle to stay together does not seem to get to an end. Watch the short in higher resolution here. Julien Bocabeille now works at Dreamworks Animation. Thanks to /Film reader Daniel L for the tip.
