This could have easily been a nominee...
6 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This Canadian film by Cordell Barker was actually better than some of the Oscar-nominated films shown during this year's showing in theaters. It was made using various types of animation and I couldn't tell if it was mostly done through stop-motion or computer generated graphics that were made to look like stop-motion. Regardless, it's very, very well made and looked impressive.

The story is just a slice of life about a man reminiscing about his life as a boy. In this instance, he's thinking back to the day when he was to dissect a frog and the way he used fantasy to deal with this. It's very clever and enjoyable. It's also the best film featuring frog guts that I think I've ever seen. In fact, I'd love to see this story hashed out into some sort of feature length cartoon.
