“Duet” by Glen Keane

Many of you will recognize Glen Keane as a longtime Disney animator, probably best known for being the designer and animator of Ariel in The Little Mermaid. After 37 or so years with Disney, Keane left in early 2012, eventually joining Motorola’s (later Google’s) Advanced Technology and Projects Group to work on interactive hand-drawn animation.

Keane’s animated short “Duet,” a part of ATAP’s Spotlight Stories, debuted at Google I/O Conference yesterday and is a lovely showcase of everything hand-drawn animation excels at doing. Enjoy! (Sadly, this is only SD, but I’ll see if I can replace it with a higher quality version eventually.)

“The Gunfighter” by Eric Kissack and Kevin Tenglin

This eight minute short features Shawn Parsons as a gunfighter who walks into a saloon, only to be tormented by a sadistic narrator (Nick Offerman). It’s pretty funny stuff, so if you have headphones (there’s language) or aren’t at work, check it out!

Filmmaker IQ’s The History of the Movie Trailer

If you’re interested in the history of film, this is pretty great. Filmmaker IQ has been making films like this for a while. (Check out their History of Cutting and The History of Hollywood Censorship and the Ratings System at their website.) The latest is a history of the movie trailer, which I’ve embedded below:

Trailer Watch*: Medieval Land Fun-Time World extended trailer

* Not really.

In Medieval Land Fun-Time World, theme park manager Eddie Stark has one week to whip his lackluster group of employees into shape before the park’s grand opening. (Not) coming this winter to a theater near you.

Thanks for the heads up, Shanin!
