At last, some animation with texture!
12 March 2002 | by tyeditSee all my reviews

I have to say I wasn't expecting much from a commercial animation house that makes Rabbits dancing around cereal bowls for a living, but this short was really cool. (I guess they have the Trix) To tell the story of a cave dude with a beard on Viagra, this movie utilized some type of texture effect that made the whole piece look like it was painted on rocks like cave drawings. In this day of lets-just-work-on-"reality" animation its nice to see someone using new technology to try new approaches to style. It was a funny little short that had a cute punch line and it didn't go on too long. Since the independent production company that produced Stubble Trouble,Calabash, isn't on the Exchange, I doubt if it will win Oscar.
