The 2005 edition of the ANIMATION SHOW premieres this Friday, February 18, in Los Angeles at the Nuart Theatre (11272 Santa Monica Boulevard). There’s a diverse, inspiring line-up of films this year including gems like WARD 13, GUARD DOG, THE MAN WITH NO SHADOW and PAN WITH US. ANIMATION SHOW co-founder Don Hertzfeldt will be in attendance at the premiere this Friday to discuss his amazing new short THE MEANING OF LIFE. I’ve seen the film and let me say that this film alone is well worth the price of admission. I have the honor of interviewing Hertzfeldt on Friday so drop by- a jolly time will be had by all. The ANIMATION SHOW opens in Seattle and Vancouver next week, and both Hertzfeldt and Mike Judge will be present for those screenings. Details at TheAnimationShow.com.
