Short Films You Must See: "More" (Mark Osborne, 1998)


An early short from the director of Kung Fu Panda. I haven't seen Kung Fu Panda yet, but if it is anything like this film then it is enormously worth seeing.


Due to embedding requests, the film cannot be placed within this post, but if you follow the link the entire film is available. Enjoy!

Wow, I've seen both films but I failed to make the connection! Kung Fu Panda is, alas, not very much like More.

Haha. I was thinking about this film yesterday and IMDB'd Mark Osborne, which is the only reason I knew the connection. I found that very odd (good for him though, I guess!) I haven't seen Kung Fu Panda but can't really imagine that it would be any better than More.

Thanks for the post!

Yea this is a great little short, I've loved it ever since some early millennial Radiohead ripoff band licensed it for use as a music video. It's a shame that Osborne has moved into generic kiddie animation rather than going on to make more personal, original films like this.
