John Hancock – Ninety-Five Senses

Ninety-five Senses, scored by John Hancock, has been nominated in the Best Animated Short category at this year’s Academy Awards

An ode to the body’s five senses, delivered by a man with little time left to enjoy them. Tim Blake Nelson and a diverse team of animators from Latin America and the U.S. bring to life this bittersweet tale of regret and redemption from the visionary duo Jerusha and Jared Hess.

Animated by six teams of artists through the non-profit MAST, each artist with a distinct style, the result is a visual tapestry that underscores the fragmentation of Coy’s thoughts and memories.

“Five stars. A brilliant slow-burner…ascends from intriguing to mesmerizing.” —

“A deeply inspirational, wise, beautifully-animated piece of art.” —Film Threat

“Sublime…delivers an emotional gut punch.” —Beyond the Cinerama Dome

“One of the most beautiful films I’ve seen in a long time” – Taika Waititi
