This is another cool breakthrough from John Lassiter, a CGI technique enabling a hand drawn effect...combining tech and a good story line to create a great short animation. Update 2.25.13: the link I originally posted was closed after this film won an Oscar for Best Animated Short, above is a new link which unfortunately has some advertising, its worth the wait, enjoy. Tip: use the full screen icon to the bottom right of the player for best viewing.
Although I am a kid at heart, I have been in the graphics and media industry for over 25 years and the web since late in 1993. I have worked as a UI designer, web designer, creative director, art director, professor, illustrator, and graphic designer. In recent years, I have been concentrating on UX (User eXperience) and UI (User Interface) design.
