Watch: Oscar-Nominated Short 'Head Over Heels' a Poignant Love Story of a Couple on Different Planes

Following the online debuts of the other four competing Oscar-nominated short animated films, stop-motion “Head Over Heels” is now available to watch until the day of the Oscars (February 24). Full video below.

The poignant, autumnally lit film centers on a couple who operate on different planes; the husband goes about his day rightside-up, while the wife conducts her daily routine on the ceiling. When an accident occurs, their world of bickering and missed communications is literally turned upside-down.

Made by a team of 11 students over 15 months, the film is directed by Timothy Reckart at the National Film and Television School.

You can watch the Oscar-nominated short “Adam and Dog” here, and “Paperman,” along with a featurette on the film, here. The other shorts, “Fresh Guacamole” and “The Simpsons: The Longest Daycare,” are available to watch here.
