Shot in black and white, "Jailbreak" follows the daring escape of a prisoner fleeing his cell and his quest for sweet punishment. The animated short from HouseSpecial Director Aaron Sorenson is a German Expressionist-inspired design mash-up of stop-motion and illustration … with a decidedly adult twist.

I picked Jailbreak because of it’s tight humor and comments on human nature. The sentiment of the protagonist taking back his freedom so he can immediately turn it over comments on the power of choice in a unique and playful way.

The production design of the town is very striking with a tip of the hat to "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari". I am a big one for editing it down to just the needed scenes and not a frame more. This is the rare time when the story is hurt by going too fast when the reveal at the end is stepped on by cutting half a beat too soon.
