“Casting The Birds” by Uli Meyer

Animator/director Uli Meyer’sCasting The Birds is not a new film, but a beautiful limited edition print Meyer’s been selling online. It’s a hand-made seven color screen print featuring a different requested drawing in the top right hand corner – making each one unique. Meyer has started a blog to display each of his one-of-a-kind birds (a few samples below). He still has 20 left (from a limited run of 50)… make that 19, I’ve decided to get one myself.

    The casting of the birds and the bird actors in “The Birds” was the plot of a Goodfeather cartoon from “Animaniacs” entitled, appropriately, “The Boids.” You can watch it in its entirety at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjYVEFq6-kc
