OK joke art short., 14 October 2012
Author: Mozjoukine ( from Australia

Accomplished art student movie. Gray on gray bird animation prefaces this purport documentary, with the film maker trying to homage a (fake) European animator (companion to Starewicz ) whose output is lost, only to find himself being sassed from the animation table by Longbird the man's simple 'toon character.

A mix of live action and simple animation, with extraneous elements like product placement and text messages (W.T.F.) interrupting the bogus narrative.


One of these makes you forgive those dodgy poetic and pastel efforts art students pour out now.
