Richard Condie's Getting Started is a highly humorous animated short
19 January 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

Just discovered this pretty amusing animated short directed by Richard Condie and produced by The National Film Board of Canada. It basically concerns the efforts of a concert pianist to practice in relative peace but he keeps procrastinating even with the clock ticking at the top of each hour. There's also a mouse that resides in the piano and a little bug to distract him. Many very humorous stuff happens here and I especially liked the part when the clock got messed up after the mouse played with the chimes causing the pianist to really feel frustrated! So if you're looking for a unique animated short from a country other than the United States, Canada's Getting Started should be right up your alley.
