The Chinese Animated Shorts Oscars!

Via Virtual China, a link to the Chinese Animated Short Oscars. The film below is called Life is Actually Like This. From Virtual China:

生活原来是这样的 (Life is Actually Like This), by students at the Beijing Film Academy, is one of the most popular and highly-rated shorts. It cuts between animation and live action a few times, features some pretty slick swerving camera shots, and is subtitled in both English and Chinese. The plot follows a chain-effect story, which is somewhat common within animated shorts.
