The best animators are able to translate the contents of their unlimited imaginations to the big screen with ease. Watch a showcase of some of their most masterful works.

The world of independent animation has its fair share of masters: animators who have spent a lifetime bending the artform to their will. Their work is about as varied and eclectic as it’s possible to be but in common, these master animators have built incredible bodies of work and perfected the ability to harness the infinite power of animation to relocate unique vision from the transcendent realm of the imagination to the physical dimension of the big screen.
