Fools on the Hill
Written by Charles   
Tuesday, 03 January 2012 23:00

A big part of the legacy of AnimationNation is how we are open to and embrace political dialog on our Forums. This goes back to the earliest days of AN. We believe it's essential to be aware of what's happening with issues that affect our lives. We're perhaps the only online community in animation that is pro-active in this regard, and we're committed to continuing this aspect of the site. That said...

Jerrol LeBaron is the proprietor of Inktip.com, a website dedicated to professional writers for the entertainment industry. He is also a political activist who is involved in initiating reform in the way the US Congress does business.

Namely... Reading the legislation our political representatives sign before they sign it. He's produced a film entitled "Fools On the Hill" in an effort to educate others as to what goes on the in the way politicians in Washington DC conduct business. The film is about ethics and legislative incompetence that follows one man's attempts to require politicians to actually read the Bills they are passing, which is not a current requirement in the US.

Check out the trailer for Jerrol LeBaron's Fools on the Hill. Also visit the website for more info about the movie here. Follow this link to the Forum topic.

While exploring on YouTube, I discovered this commercial as it ran prior to a video. A clever reworking of the Blue Sky characters from the animated feature film "Rio" as they do their thing in a spot for Kia's Rio. Posted by KiaMotorsAmerica earlier this month.
