I went to the 12th Annual Animation Show of Shows at UArts last Thursday evening. Needless to say, it was a good time. Ron Diamond, the curator of the show and President of the Animation World Network, put together an eclectic mix of films; the directors ranged from students to professionals.
I bought a bunch of DVDs --a box set and two 3-film discs-- since in my mind, if a purchase is for animation, I'm not really spending too much money (my bank account would argue otherwise). Speaking of which, I also bought a mass of "The Art of" books, which should be arriving in the mail shortly. Excited.
