You guys want to see something awesome?
THIS is why I dig animation. It’s beautiful. It’s original. It’s a bit on the weird side. It conveys a mood and tells a story more succinctly than live action film can. In live action, the Lighthouse Keeper would not have been as thick, as hunched. We wouldn’t be able to feel as tangibly the heaviness of his cloak or the weight of his movements. A live action telling of the same story would have been confined to physical realities and traditional interpretations of height and depth.
Animation is to live action film what poetry is to prose, and while some people aren’t partial to poetry, they can appreciate its character and complexity.
Plus, you guys, did you see the size of that firefly? That shit was WACK.
