Saturday Morning Cartoons “A Warm Reception in LA” and “Out of Sight”

Out of Sight

A Warm Reception in L.A.

Two very different films about vision: one about not having it and the other about trying to keep it and earn a living with it.

Out of Sight: A beautiful little film, masterfully animated. It's hard to believe this is a student film, but it is. (5:28)

A Warm Reception in LA: All about what happens when a writer finished his script. (5:06)

Out of Sight

A Warm Reception in LA

For more animation, visit our Saturday Morning Cartoon Index.

René Walling is a fan of SF, animation and comics, this has led him to co-chair Anticipation, the 2009 Worldcon, be involved with fps magazine for more than a decade, and start Nanopress, a Canadian small press. He looks forward to living on Mars where he would benefit from having more than 24 hours in a day.

Wow, no other comments yet? Well, I enjoyed the films anyway. I'm familiar with "Warm Reception" from its inclusion in one of the "International Tournee of Animation" VHS compilations (and will someone put those on DVD someday, please?) but hadn't heard of "Out of Sight", a nifty conceit that stretches but doesn't outstay its welcome. Thanks for putting these up, and I look forward to next week's links!

Nice to see Warm Reception again. Saw it on British tv back in the late '80's and it's stayed with me. Now all I need to find is the cartoon of shop dummies in 18th century dress playing a tune on 'cellos and violins while floating on a stormy sea that I saw on Northern Irish tv in the early '80s.
Or maybe I dreamt it.
