J. and I went to The Animation Show last night at the Paramount Theater. It's a touring program of animated short films, curated by Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt.
All the films were wonderful, but a few stood out. "Everything Will Be OK," by Don Hertzfeldt was particularly beautiful and moving, as was "Dreams and Desires" by Joanna Quinn. Both were beautifully drawn. The experience got me to thinking that if I really want to incorporate my visual art training into my film work, I should be doing animation. Hm.
