Saturday Morning Cartoons: “Pencil Test” and “Day & Night”

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Pencil Test and Day & Night

Pencil Test: Long before Galyn Susman starred in The Movie Vanishes, she worked on this short using a Mac computer ad (I imagine) lots of patience and hard work. (3:03 minutes)

Day & Night: One of the reasons for Pixar’s success is that they know they are following a century old tradition of animated cinema. This film probably demonstrates it better than any others, while going somewhere not seen before. (5:51 minutes)

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.

1. Desmond the theatrical version of Day & Night, the radio station didn't play music; it played an excerpt from a lecture by Wayne Dyer. I wonder why the change...

The change definitely isn't for the better. The theatrical version was a delight, but this version ends on a note that's way too didactic for my taste.
