Excellent animated mini-anthology
1 July 2012 | by (Peru) – See all my reviews

This is a great short.

For me it was such a wonderful experience had the chance to see so many different animation styles contained in a very brief time: The result is simply magnificent, imaginative and beautiful, showing in a couple of seconds (or minutes) the artistic vision of some of the greatest animators from different parts of the world: Bill Plympton,Priit Parn, Jiri Barta, Jan Svankmajer, Kihachiro Kawamoto, Osamu Tezuka, among others are to express a glimpse of their immense creative world into this compilation, resulting in some of the most rewarding watching experiences that I had in my entire life.

A must see for every animation fan.
