The Animation Show

The Animation ShowLauren, Mike, Gary and I went to see Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt’s The Animation Show at the Laemmle Regent Showcase on La Brea this evening. I don’t have words with enough emphasis to describe how great it was. Not since Spike and Mike’s Festival of Animation several years ago have I seen anything approaching this level of amazing animation. There were repeat favorites such as Hertzfeldt’s Billy’s Balloon and Rejected, but the real gems of the show were breathtaking: Mt. Head by Koji Yamamura, Ident by Richard Goleszowski, The Cathedral by Tomek Baginski, La Course a L’abime by Georges Schwizgebel, Vincent by Tim Burton, and Das Rad (The Rocks) by Chris Stenner, Arvid Uibel, and Heidi Wittlinger.

If you have the means, I highly recommend seeing this wonderful collection of shorts before it leaves theatres.

Update: Rejected is available directly from Bitter Films.

There was never a claim that I was going to show the video. I merely posted a review of “The Animation Show,” linked to a “Which Rejected character are you” quiz, and the Internet did the rest. To be honest, I’m not quite sure how this site became the Google sanctioned mecca for all things Rejected.

More to the point, though, you seem to have missed the fact that on the quiz page, SeriousBody has provided a link to a clip.
