Geri’s Game


An aging codger named Geri plays a daylong game of chess in the park against himself. Somehow, he begins losing to his livelier opponent. But just when the game's nearly over, Geri manages to turn the tables.

There's Geri. And then there's the other Geri. You'd swear they were twins who haven't got along since birth. In reality, it's only one very old man who is young at heart, having a little fun with himself by faking a heart attack and finding new uses for his dentures.

When Pixar sets out to do short films, it sometimes does so with research and development in mind. In "Geri's Game"the challenge was to take human and cloth animation to new heights. The creative team succeeded, and Pixar won an Academy Award? for Best Animated Short Film as well.
