Shane Acker is this year's winner of Sigraph's Best of Show award! I have seen the trailer for it and it is very cool. In fact, it is so cool that Tim Burton has announced that he will produce a full length version of it!! The thing I like about it is, that even though it is CG it has a nice stop motion quality about it. So check AnimationTrip, who have a good interview with him and also look at the rest of the interviews in their Where Great Minds Meet series.
