Wow am I behind! The bad news is the Sundance Film Festival wrapped up this weekend but the good news is that you can watch alot of the short films on-line!! There are 8 of the animated films to be viewed as FPS so conveniently hightlights for us. I recommend Fables by Dan Sousa, which I let run around the bigbunny maze here and Clara by Van Sowerwine who's Play with Me was a creepy treat for us last year! Also, there is cool lo-fi films such as Fumi and the Bad Luck Foot by David Chai to the slick CG of Jeff Fowler's Gopher Broke. So even though Sundance isn't very high on the animation festival circuit, you can see that it is trying to establish a small niche of diverse films. Best of all, they are now bringing the festival to us with this on-line GO LIVE venue that is a front row seat to the independent film scene!!
