A while back, I mentioned Ken Priebe's mini-festival of animation. Well, it's coming up this weekend, and Ken's posted a trailer on YouTube...
Marvelous clip. Certainly makes the connection between "animate" and "breath of life."
Ken is a professional animator (and teacher of animators) who writes for hollywoodjesus. Great guy, big IRON GIANT fan, extraordinarily knowledgeable - his book on stop-motion animation is the standard text in the field.
