Two recommendations


Recently, I had the opportunity to see a clip of the Oscar winning animated short “The Lost Thing.” I was intrigued enough to purchase it on iTunes for $1.99. Wow. This short, about 16 minutes long, is so visually arresting with a compelling story line to boot. Highly, highly recommended.

I challenge you not to watch the part that begins about 12 minutes in, over and over.

Second is a film that I’ve had in my Netflix queue forever due to another artist recommending it. The documentary is now available for free on demand. “Between the Folds” is billed as the science of art and the art of science. I find it hard to describe, it is so much more than the art of origami. The documentary starts small and builds into possibilities that you can’t even imagine. Watch this!
