There's a new feature documentary out called Persistence of Vision by Kevin Schreck. It's about the acclaimed, visionary animator Richard Williams. A three time Oscar winner and the man who made "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". In his three decade quest to make the greatest animated film of all time, Williams passionately toiled away on his masterpiece only to have his project torn from his hands and recut into something entirely different.

Persistence of Vision is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made. The first time this forgotten episode in cinema history has been told in a single major work.

The film had its world premiere earlier this month at the Vancouver International Film Festival where it received sold-out screenings and very positive press.

Persistence of Vision is having its U.S. premiere at the Starz Denver Film Festival on November 3 and 4, 2012 and its East Coast premiere at this year's DOC NYC Film Festival, on Friday, November 9th, at 9:15 pm, at SVA. It will also have its European premiere at the Leeds International Film Festival on Nov. 14, 2012 with many more festivals to come in the future.

Here's a look at the trailer for Persistence of Vision.

Joel Weber brought the news to the AN Forums about the software he's developing which will give everyone the opportunity to animate. The software is called Animajig and Joel's gone the Kickstarter route in hopes of funding the project and getting it launched.

Animajig is a Web-based application, completely written in HTML5, so it plays everywhere. It's a 2D skeletal animation system. What makes it unique is that the animation is built using assets that are created by and shared between all users. So if someone makes a cool skin or action, everyone can use it. The community's resources are used to create animation. This gives animators a chance to interact with their audience in a way not previously possible. Viewers can respond by creating animation using the very characters they just watched. Animajig gives everyone a chance to create!

For more information you can access the Forum topic, watch the following video and head to the Animajig Kickstarter campaign. Consider pledging and help Joel turn Animajig into a reality for all.
