Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde
Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things
A detective tale with a jazzy soundtrack and… chickens. Simple animation but a fun romp.
In true hard-boiled detective style, a rooster tries to find the thief of the egg that was stolen from his chicken. Soon all traces point towards the farmer. But before the egg can be saved from becoming hard-boiled itself, the rooster and his chicken have to fight the farmer’s cat for it. Spectacular action, including a fight, a chase, and the birth of a new chicken.
Directed by Arjan Wilschut
A National Film Board of Canada classic and good short to start the year with. A reminder that sometimes you need to just take a moment out of the fray. Written and animated by Tali
[A] comical tale that pokes fun at motherhood. It depicts the temper tantrums of a child and the efforts a mother makes to set her son on the right path. You don’t need to be a chicken to relate.
I, for one, welcome our new Avian Overlords.
