Ron Diamond of Acme FilmWorks brought his Animation Show of Shows to Electronic Arts today. The 85 minute show included 11 different shorts, plus a Q&A session with two of the directors afterward. Koji Yamamura (left) directed “Franz Kafka’s A Country Doctor”, and Alexi Alexeev (center) directed the (very) short “KJFG #5.” Ron Diamond is on the right.
My personal favorite was “Keith Reynolds Can’t Make It Tonight,” which was director Felix Massie’s graduation film for his animation degree. (You can see an excerpt here.) He uses simple stick figure animation in a Sim Tower type environment with a wonderful narration voiceover.
