Watch: Stunning New Argentinian Short Film, Shave it

Check out this wonderfully bizarre and visually stunning animated short film from Argentinian animation house, 3dar. The plot synopsis for the short, Shave it, is given as:

"In the wilderness of the forests where giant bulldozers are tearing apart the woods there is a monkey that accidentally finds a shaving machine and decides to use it. Spontaneously disguised as a human being, he moves out to the city and starts a career. After a stunning success in business, he understands the need of gaining political power. Not too long after, he becomes the president. Now he is ready to make a change."

The short completely pushes the boundaries of modern animation and what it can look like, as well as feeling as though it was directed by a young Genndy Tartakovsky. The story's crazy and a little bit trippy, but the visuals - the colours, the design, the animation - are some of the most impressive I've seen in a very long time. Shave it's directed by Jorge Tereso and Fernando Maldonado.

And the visual splendour doesn't end there: head over to 3dar's (who have done VFX and animation work for Dell and Google in the past) website to see hi-res wallpapers, stunning concept art and great colour scripts (like above).

We'll certainly be keeping an eye on 3dar in the future...
