Logorama, directed by H5/ François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain, and produced by Autour de Minuit, took the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film at the 82nd Academy Awards.

The 17-minute long animated film depicts events in a stylized Los Angeles, where everything and everyone is made entirely of logos. There are over 2,500 historical logos and corporate symbols, every one of which will be instantly recognisable, and the film features amazing urban logo landscapes, brilliant car chases, and Ronald McDonald as a crazed hostage-taker.

The film previously won the Prix Kodak at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
