March 16: “The Collector” (Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream 1981)

This is a real find, that I didn’t know about until I poked around on YouTube just a bit longer.

The Collector (the complete movie), appeared as part of One Man’s Dream (1981), a tribute to Walt Disney hosted by Michael Landon. (The short begins at about 1:55 in the overall feature.)

There is a separate fragment of this piece, with Spanish subtitles, but it’s not complete. Leonard Maltin refers to this documentary in his commentary introducing the much shorter version.

I give you the awesomely talented Mike Jittlov, the man who gives new meaning to the words “The Wearing of the Green.”

Happy Saturday.

March 15: Animato ~ Swing Shift

It’s awesome. (The bookshelf animation early in this list reminds me of Jittlov’s work, and this piece in particular.)

Bonus: Pete & Jul3ia’s Excellent Adventure: Hollywood (with Filmmaker Mike Jittlov)

March 14: Animato ~ Fashionation

Animato was a three-part animation sampler. It consisted of Fashionation, Swing Shift and Time Tripper (the last of which is NOT available on YouTube at the moment). Fun stuff! Spent many an hour watching the 16mm at Balticon and elsewhere. (First con: 1984) You could almost call his shorts the first viral videos. Almost.

Dunno how he’s doing. Been a LONG time since he updated his web site.

Bonus: The Mechanic of Speed and Time

March 13: The Wizard of Speed and Time Original Short 1979

This is one of my absolute all-time favorite short films. Back when I first started going to Science Fiction conventions, this would play sometime during the weekend (along with other Mike Jittlov shorts) and I’d always make a point to see them. I have the long form, too, and it’s good, considering, but this beats it hands down.
