Eye candy: Hitch

With the 3D industry entering its pre-Siggraph lull, CG Channel takes advantage of the down time to look
back over some of the best student shorts you may have missed earlier this year. Part of a short series

Since both of the other shorts in our student round-up came from well-known international schools, it’s nice to be able to close with something a little more unexpected.

Hitch, animated by Pascal Monaco and Felix Meyer at Hannover’s University of Applied Sciences and Arts, is a crisp motion-graphics short, reimagining the recipe for a perfect Hitchcock movie as… well, a series of recipes.

We’d say more, but part of the fun is identifying the Hitchcock films being referenced. The Birds, Vertigo and North by Northwest are all relatively obvious. What else can you spot?
