I just really liked the shortness of this animation and how it's humor.
lighting - i like the use of lighting how its mundane when he's at work, and it focuses on the main character and the musician, then at the end when he smashes up the cd player the lighting comes back to the reality.
I like the idea of a never ending tale here, you can see the animation live on after the visual is over
Zombieland - Rules
I like the idea of a mockumentary of whats going on in scene.
Red vs. Blue
Using existing characters and working with them and altering there original purpose. Like the idea of altering a fairytale to be told from another perspective.

Lumiere Beauty and the Beast
I like the exaggeration used in Lumiere which i could repeat in maya with simple deformers of squash and stretch if i were to animate an object.
