Strawberry Pie - CGI Animation

Here's a great little film by a university student named Antonio Reyna. It's about a boy on a hilltop who tries mightily to welcome his new neighbor.

It is a charming little tale and it looks very good. You know, with all these incredible university animators around there should be enough entertainment available to save us all sorts of money we might otherwise waste trying to watch movies about talking Chevron cars.

Watch the film here.

Tenggren Illustrations for Grimms' Tales

The ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive has posted illustrations from a 1923 book of Grimms' Tales by Gustaf Tenggren.

You can see them here.

I do believe the one to left here is from Hansel and Gretel. Look at those big wondering eyes on the children. And I think Gretel has just dropped the piece of the gingerbread that she was eating. It's never a good thing to be caught eating someone's house.
