This is Wayne Lytle's More Bells and Whistles. He created it in 1990, long before his famous Animusic DVDs. This video was also used as part of YTV's "Short Circutz" in the mid '90s. I captured this recording from Miramar's "Imaginaria" LaserDisc for maximum quality. It's far superior to the VHS or MovieCD versions uploaded before. About the only way to get a better recording would be to go back to the studio master tapes.
This is the animated short Night Magic from Miramar's Imaginaria. It was also among the shorts to air as part of YTV's Short Circutz in the mid 90s.
if you're wondering about the quality, there's a reason for it being rather poor. These animations were created on early computers as separate projects in the late 80s. They were then output to film or (ugh) VHS. This was then collected by Miramar who somehow edited them together into the shorts. Once that was done, it was released on VHS tape. Later on, these VHS tapes were recorded into a computer by unknown means and compressed with an obscure video compressor. The result was burned to a CD and mailed off. After that it was extracted from it's bizzare video format and converted into a more standard AVI format. Finally it was uploaded to Youtube and re-encoded in their system. That means that this short has been in 8 different lossy video formats by the time you watch it. It's a wonder you can even make out what's happening.
After realizing that yellow sticky notes, filled with "To Do" lists, were consuming his life, director Jeff Chiba Stearns decided to visually self-reflect on his own filmmaking journey by animating 2,300 of those same sticky notes. Blending hand-drawn images and text with an original musical score by Genevieve Vincent, this "animation meditation" played in the official competition at the 2008 Tribeca Film Festival.
In this Oscar-winning short film, Norman McLaren employs the principles normally used to put drawings or puppets into motion to animate live actors. The story is a parable about two people who come to blows over the possession of a flower. Film without words.
