This was sent in by a reader to share with the community. Created by Robin George, it's a three minute short film entitled "Tezcatlipoca". Based upon the jaguar god of Aztec mythology, it's produced in the tradition of Fantasia and animated to Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake.

The short films that are being created nowadays are astoundingly good and getting better all the time. Check it out.

Noticed that CartoonBrew embedded this video in their blog today. Well, whaddya know, we featured this 2 1/2 months before they did.

I would like to share some links they posted to the forces behind the film.

The film's creator:

Southern Adventist University’s School of Visual Art and Design where Robin made it happen.

And an animated feature the school's currently producing.
