    That´s funny… a short I made in 2005 comes to mind:
    The concept was to tell the (fictional) story of a painting and showcase the painter´s style (in our case Claude Monet) in the short as well. Shot on Mini-DV and painted frame by frame in Painter.
    you can see it here:

    Just click on the second picture from the top to view the (very short) short “Die Barke” (German for “the rowboat”).
    There is a youtube version available. For your viewing pleasure:
