Watch award-winning animation 'Cadaver' for free!

It's won a string of film festival prizes, and is now available to view online in full! A clever and wickedly funny story written and directed by Jonah D. Ansell, 'Cadavar' tells the tale of love and death in the form of rhyming couplets (it's a "Shakesperian sonnet for the 21st century"). As the cavador prepares to say his last goodbye to his wife, he discovers an aspect of death that he did not know before...

Lead animator Abe Dieckman (opens in new tab), character artist Carina Simmons (opens in new tab) and art director Eric Vennemeyer (opens in new tab) have pulled off a creatively stunning short, with Hollywood stars Christopher Lloyd and Kathy Bates, alongside US teen icon Tavi Gevinson, lending their voices.

For more information about the film itself, you can visit the Cadaver website (opens in new tab). You can also pre-order (opens in new tab) a graphic novel based on the film.
