Head Over Heels: An Oscar-Nominated Stop-Motion Short About the Struggles of an Upside Down Relationship

It’s not often that a student film gets nominated for an Oscar, but such was the case with Head Over Heels, the graduate film of animator Timothy Reckart that went on to pickup awards and nominations around the world when it was released two years ago. The film tells the story of a crumbling relationship depicted by the visual metaphor of a couple who are pulled by gravity in opposite directions; one lives on the ceiling and the other on the floor. Reckart just made the film viewable online for the first time along with a number of extras including a director’s commentary. (via Colossal Submissions)
