John Canemaker in the NY TIMES

Yesterday’s NY TIMES (use BugMeNot to bypass registration) had a piece by Charles Solomon about John Canemaker’s Oscar-nominated short THE MOON AND THE SON: AN IMAGINED CONVERSATION. At the end of the piece is this eloquent thought by Canemaker:

The potential for animation to be emotionally expressive and personal has barely been touched. In the future, we’re going to see more personal films, including memoirs and diaries… Animation has been ghettoized as a kids’ medium, which is a waste of its potential for artists who could express larger visions.
