Starring Tucker Gilmore, Michael Herrera, and Brittany Morgan, “Short Circuit” is a series of American independent animated short films in which the employees pitch their ideas for a short and work with fellow employees to create the short if selected, and is meant to take risks in both visual styles and storytelling. The first short released under the program is Cycles, directed by Jeff Gipson, which is Disney’s first VR short.
HERE’S EVERYTHING WE KNOW ABOUT SEASON TWO!
The Second Season will premiere on Wednesday, August 4, 2021, on Disney+.
“Short Circuit” is an experimental program where anyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios can pitch an idea and potentially be selected to create an original, innovative short film with the support of the studio and their fellow artists. The goal of the program is to take risks, surface new and diverse storytelling voices at the Studio, and experiment with new technological innovations in the filmmaking process.
“Each of the short films has its own unique style — from the hand-drawn charm of Dinosaur Barbarian to the auditory experience of Songs to Sing in the Dark — our five directors all have something special to say through their stories,” production manager Jennifer Newfield tells ET. “We’re excited to have five completely unique films this season — and by the way, there are even more to come in future seasons of Short Circuit!”
