First animated short by amateur 3d film maker Ken Dunn offers an explanation of how the Empire tracked down those rebels with the stolen plans. All original models, sets, animation, and score make this a one man show taking place in the much [over] emulated STAR WARS universe. Many of the sets from the opening scenes of episode IV are reproduced in loving detail here in "Droid Rage" making it a worthy addition to a fan tradition.
The Mind's Eye: "Stanley & Stella in Breaking The Ice" (alt. name 'Love Found') Radio Shack VHS Edit 1992.Music by James Reynolds.
A spectacular computer-animated odyssey through time, combined with original music. The journey begins at the dawn of civilization and moves through the rise of man and technology, on into the future, with breathtaking visual imagery. The Mind's Eye joins these stunning visuals together with a powerful, original music soundtrack, composed by James Reynolds. The upbeat, futuristic music blends perfectly with the visual themes of The Mind's Eye of emotional and technological imagery with music.
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.
Nine months of part time work gave birth to The Blackheart Gangâ€™s acclaimed short film called, The Tale of How. The Tale of How is the second part of a trilogy of works called the Dodo Trilogy. It is to later be flanked by The Tale of Then and The Tale of When. The Dodo Trilogy, in turn, fits into a much greater work called, The Household.In the The Tale of How we meet a giant octopus with a tree growing in his head, the terror of the Indian ocean , OTTO THE MONSTER! His lonley past time is to devour the innocent dodoâ€™s who lived on his head. We then see the dodoâ€™s unite and with the help of a little white mouse, we saw them escape the clutches of the terrible be-tentacled tyrant and sail off into the sunset on their mother the tree.
The Tale of How consists out of a series of 13 prints and a short animated film.
