Australian Children's Television Foundation (Australia)Horace in Slow Motion 2, children/family programming, is a series of 45 second animated episodes that are outrageously absurd, weird and mesmerizingly gross. Horace is a lovable, portly pig who performs his greatest bodily acts in slow motion broadcast on ABC3 in Australia. LINK 
Kinksy Inc.A Standard Story, experimental, is a dreamlike short film about a girl living a mundane existence in a hotel wakes to find herself in the middle of an enchanted forest. In this alternate universe she goes no a remarkable journey of discovery. It is a wonderfully original and carefully crafted film by a talented director/actress. LINK
