Sunstone: In the late 70s, Ed Emshwiller walked into the New York Institute of Technology and said he wanted to make a 3 hour computer graphics film. Once the staff stopped laughing, they told him 3 minutes was more realistic. So Emshwiller collaborated with eventual Pixar founder Alvy Ray Smith and produced this short. (2:55 minutes)
