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
