Mac 'n' Cheese is an animated short directed and created by four students at the Utrecht School of Arts in the Netherlands. This roughly two minute animation took about five months to make, and about a bajillion peanut butter sandwiches.
Synopsis: When you find yourself running scared and running out of energy, there's only a few options left to outrun your opponent through the southern desert. Stopping at nothing, watch these two guys wear each other out and rip through boundaries hitherto unbroken. Enjoy the ride!
If I'm correct a lot was drawn with Meet Buck. Nevertheless in our short Mac 'n' Cheese everything you see is 3D, except for the smoke, dust and sparks effects. Of course a lot came from the texturing, but most of the style came from the shader and how we composited it.
We hope to release a making of somewhere in the future, we'll probably post it up on vimeo and/or youtube. Best is to keep an eye out on our facebook page and you'll get notified!
Hope this answers some of your questions!

Wow. Between this, "Meet Buck", and that other one I forget the name of with the macguffin that turns people into fish, it looks like the painted, 2½-D style is really popular with animation students these days.
