Cooped, a fantastic hand-drawn animation, won the Best Short Animation award in the 10th FILMSdesireCompetition. Written and directed by American filmmaker Mike A Smith, Cooped is a comic short animation that tells the story of a poor dog who is cooped up all day while his master is at work. The hound can see the amazing world of squirrels and tennis balls that exists outisde his place of imprisonment, but is unable to open the door with his thumbless paws. With his master only ever coming home to sleep, it seems that our canine hero will never escape. If you like the comic Cooped by American animator Mike A Smith be sure to rate it and share it.
