The animated shorts follow our music video and film titles coverage to wrap up our SXSW 2012 round-ups. The SXSW love’s not over though – there’s some panel coverage and an interview with Wayne White and Neil Berkeley on their fantastic documentary, Beauty is Embarrasing, on the way.
The Medium Cool: 4 (not so) Shorts program featured Don Hertzfeldt’s it’s such a beautiful day, the final chapter of his Everything will be OK trilogy. The beautiful (23-minute!) short film shows Hertzfeldt stretching his technique, blending traditional animation with experimental optical effects – a stick figure Tree of Life. Hertzfeldt’s it’s such a beautiful day tour is in its last weeks, so if you happen to be in Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Memphis, Madison, or Minneapolis grab your tickets!
