The Animation Show on iTunes

Animation Show on iTunes

Last week our friends at The Animation Show started selling independent animated shorts on Apple’s iTunes. The films from their touring festival are packaged together into short episodes and there’s six episodes currently available. One episode features a couple of personal favorites from the past few years, Ward 13 and Overtime, another is a Bill Plympton compilation with his films Guard Dog and Eat plus a special making-of-Guard Dog, and another episode has Tomek Baginski’s CG shorts Cathedral and Fallen Art. All are priced at $1.99. They can be found in the TV Shows>Comedy section of iTunes.

    This is good for people who cant see the show or find the DVDs.

    Gene – I believe Animation Show’s deal is with MTV which is why they’re in the TV show section. iTunes also has a short film section, but it’s woefully understocked, with only animated shorts by Pixar, Disney and the distributor Shorts International.

    Of course you can get both DVDs for for $18.99 over at Amazon. or buy direct from them for the same price.

    I already have volume one, but since the box set is only a couple of dollars more than volume 2, I’ll get it and give my volume one to someone else.
