I viewed this Oscar nominated and wining, short film at The Loft Theater.
If you can remember that my daughter's birthday gift to me was a month long Hayao Miyazaki film festival, they ran this short one day. I was so excited !
I personally like short films and animation films so much better that most of the bloated, overpriced hollywood offering they toss at us every year.
Here is a wonderful article that has the whole 6 minute short and explains the innovative animation by reintroducing line work.
I loved this film (story is charming and music is lovely) one scene especially stands out, not more than a second long, 2 cuts, when the main character is being pushed up the train steps by the paper, the play of shadows, black and white and line work is exceptional.
And a shout out to "Brave" (who won the Oscar) and "Wreck It Ralph" both different style animation film and both great viewing. But I must admit "Wreck It Ralph" is better view with a 20+ year old who has played most of the games because of all the inside jokes. This made the film so much better for me because I laughed all the more because of daughters infectious laughter.
Much like the film "UP" ( another fabulous animation film) daughter lived in Oakland at the time this film came out and there is a lot of inside jokes/places about the area around the studio.
