Billy's Balloon

I can't believe it took me this long to think of looking for this animated short (NSFKind-hearted souls) on YouTube... I have a framed postcard depicting a shot from this film hanging over my desk.

I still find myself completely cracked up by the end of it. :D The subtle expressions, the ridiculous escalation of violence... it's priceless.

I LOVE Don Hertzfeldt's work. His new short, The Meaning Of Life is reall pretty amazing, too, as is Rejected. He's just put out a DVD (well, pre-orders for same) of all his films, sans the one he's working on right now, what with that not being finished and all. Bitter Films is his production company from whence you can get it. I've ordered it, and I've had the Rejected DVD single forever. It's AWESOME.

Coincidentally, I just ran across this pretty cool profile article about Don Hertzfeldt.
