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:

* 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!

This terrific animated short from TED-Ed looks at the evolution of modern bird feathers using narration by Carl Zimmer and some lovely animation by Armella Leung. Beautifully done.

Paperman played in front of Wreck-It Ralph‘s theatrical run, and it was absolutely wonderful. (Your mileage may vary, but if you appreciate a little magical realism, you’ll probably dig it.) The music by Christophe Beck is lovely, the sort of hybrid 2D/CGI animation technique is lovely… It’s just a lovely short film. If you haven’t seen it, enjoy. If you have, I’m sure you’ll enjoy seeing it again.
