Waltz with Bashir

An early plug for a film called Waltz with Bashir.  It’s a combination of cel, flash, and computer animation, to tell the realistic story of a former soldier’s memories of combat.  It has had brief runs in NY and LA (I think), just to qualify for Oscar consideration (however, they apparently didn’t meet some deadline set by the Academy, so it might not qualify).  It will hit theatres in early 2009.  But it looks stunning.  It’s also a nice break from conventional animation.

Take a look at the trailer…
