Steve Ogden has a site called AnimWatch
which showcases the best in indepemdent animation. All of the projects featured on the site are wonderful examples of what talented folks can do. My favorite is Rust Boy
In the last few days Steve has announced that a group of these short films (incuding a new Trailer/Showreel from Rust Boy) will be available on DVD
for about $20. That's less than what you would have spent for two months of Uru:Live! I've indicated my interest in the DVD by responding via email as requested on Steve's site. Why don't you do the same?
From Steve: "By the way, unlike most DVDs of this type, the profits are shared among the people who actually made the films, so if you like independent animated film, here's your chance to support it! There will be more info on this page as we nail down more details about the DVD. Stay tuned!
