    Hi All,

    It was just announced yesterday that The Animation Show: Volume One is coming to DVD. The Animation Show: Volume One was in theaters last year, but they could not get all the rights to produce all of the same shorts for this DVD. So, they added some shorts to replace the ones they took out.

    Here is a listing of what will be on the DVD:

    Welcome to the Show, by Don Hertzfeldt
    Mt Head (Atama Yama), by Koji Yamamura
    Brother, by Adam Elliot
    Parking, by Bill Plympton
    The Adventures of Ricardo, by Corky Quakenbush
    La Course A L'Abime, by Georges Schwizgebel
    Billy's Balloon, by Don Hertzfeldt
    Cousin, by Adam Elliot
    The Cathedral (Katedra), by Tomek Baginski
    Intermission in the Third Dimension, by Don Hertzfeldt
    Fifty Percent Grey, by Ruairi Robinson
    Uncle, by Adam Elliot
    Early Pencil Tests and other Experiments, by Mike Judge
    Aria, by Pjotr Sapegin
    Bathtime in Clerkenwell, by Aleksey Budovskiy
    The Rocks (Das Rad), by Chris Stenner, Arvid Uibel, and Heidi Wittlinger
    The End of the Show, by Don Hertzfeldt

    Matt-

    I understand that "Rejected" is going to be available on a collection that Hertzfelt's "Bitter Films" company is going to release, but it is taking them a long long time.

    In the meantime, there is a great DVD-Single of "Rejected" that has special features that are great, including a commentary by a friend of the Hertzfedlt.

    You can buy that DVD-Single of "Rejected" at Hertzfeldt's website:

    www.bitterfilms.com

    Regards,

    Mark

    Don Hertzfeldt's Rejected is available on DVD at the same site. They released that last year, which would explain why it's not in Volume One.

    Here's a description:



    The Bonus Features are:

    frame-by-frame digitally remastered 35mm film transfer and soundtrack, exclusive to this DVD only - the next best thing to seeing it in a theater

    the never-before-seen deleted scene

    discarded sketches + experiments

    entirely awful audio commentary
    by voice actor robert may


    complete production journal

    animated menus

    remote control scene selection

    plus extra surprises!

    This is an all-region DVD that should be playable in any NTSC DVD player around the world.

    You can check it out at:

    A little OT, but I went to High School with Don Hertzfeldt.

    Excellent news!
    I saw this at the local arthouse, glad I did. Some great pieces in there. I may need to pick up that Rejected disk too.

    Just a note to remind that Disney's "Mars and Beyond" short, which played in the theatrical version of the Animation Show, will be on the "Tomorrowland" Walt Disney Treasures DVD coming out this spring.
