"Spilled Oil" animated short film by MAKE of Minneapolis

Postby Charles » Wed Jun 16, 2010 10:55 am

Heard from our friend at MAKE today, and happy to share this with the community.

An almost prophetic animated short film, and one that is certainly relevant to what's happening in the Gulf of Mexico right now, affecting millions of people and sea life. MAKE, an animation studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota created "Spilled Oil", a PSA (Public Service Announcement) in traditional cell animation, pencil and paper that was then treated in the computer. Although it was produced a couple of years ago, it's currently as important as it ever was.
