Popeye the Sailor - Restored Cartoons on DVD

Here's a fantastic DVD collection containing 60 of the original Popeye cartoons produced by the Fleischer Studio in the 1930s. The cartoons are fully restored to their full black & white glory and placed on the discs in the order of their original theatrical release dates. There is also a huge amount of extra documentary material and some other short films that will fascinate anyone interested in animation. These cartoons have never been available in such pristine condition before. This is an incredible box of DVDs.

Windows, Masks & Doors - Animated Short

Windows, Masks & Doors is an animated short by Sarah Orenstein. It was made as her senior thesis project at the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006. The film takes the viewer on a train ride in a sort of magic box environment where the scenery is constructed like a miniature stage set. It is one of those little movies you will want to watch more than once so that you can see all the clever details.
