Fellow Animators:

Cool It is a controversial new feature documentary on Global Warming from Bjorn Lumborg, the political scientist and author of The Skeptical Environmentalist. It's directed by two time Sundance winner Ondi Timoner. Our company, Four-Eyed Films, was hired to create two cartoon animated segments in the film explaining "Cap and Trade" and "Greenwashing". It's wasn't easy to entertain and inform on these complicated topics, but we think that was accomplished in our segments. The film begins a 500 theater run this Friday, November 12th nationwide. To view the animated clips go to http://foureyedfilms.com/detail.php?t=work&i=66

I welcome your feedback and look forward to participating in this very important industry website.

Great! Thank you for posting the link to your company's animation and letting us know about this film. I learned more from these short sequences than anything else that's come my way so far about the issues addressed. The animation is clean and simple, the design very effective and the concept is communicated clearly and efficiently. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention and welcome to the AN community.
