So far I have seen:

The Maker - beautiful work

The Box Man - spellbound at the animation and sets

Any others?

Ok, here's a few of my favorites:

The Sandman by Paul Berry (embedding disabled)

That's good for starters... more later.

Here's one of my favorites...

Mostly good choices so far - Balance is one of my all-time favourites.

Here's another -

Hasta Los Huesos (down to the bone) by Rene Castillo:

Next is, well, ... Next:

and one more:

This must be the best thread on the site! Here's more... starting with one from the makers of 'The Maker. 

RUNG from CHUCK DUKE on Vimeo.

It's hard, but I'm gonna stop there

This is excellent.
Thanks for posting Rung, Beyond Craft - it was completely new to me. Didn't understand it on first viewing but I love the set and the feel of it, so will watch again.

If you like The Separation, here's another one by the same guy (not exclusively animation, but the animation it does have is fantastically creepy)


The Cat With Hands

Here are two good ones:

Hilary from anthony hodgson on Vimeo.

Rapunzel's Flight from gustavo arteaga on Vimeo.

And how could I forget this one:

SEED from Seed Movie on Vimeo.

Another interesting film  Quest

These are great guys! Really enjoyed Rung.

A brief intrusion of text on this thread - I wasn't entirely sure what constitutes independent animation - according to Wiki it means animation produced outside of the Hollywood studio system - but I wouldn't call Laika independent, or Aardman (at least now - maybe in the beginning Aardman would be considered independent). I posted 2 of Suzie Templeton's earlier home-made films above but not Peter and the Wolf because that was a professional production heavily funded and made in a production facility. I don't know - it might qualify as independent even though it was a huge undertaking. I suppose if Barry Perves' films are considered independent even as well funded as they tend to be and using puppets made by MacKinnon and Saunders, then maybe Peter and the Wolf counts too - aaaand, a look at its Wiki page shows it won at Annecy, an international independent animation festival, so I guess it does count:

I suppose technically Laika and Aardman qualify as independent too, even though they have proffessional facilities on a level with Hollywood and seem to have the same very safe/conventional outlook. 

Then of course there's the opposite end of the spectrum - completely unsafe and unconventional:
