check this s*** out!

The first three images are from The Adventures of Prince Achmed, the oldest surviving feature length animated film made in 1926 and using silhouettes (kind of like shadow puppetry).

The next two are from The Mysterious Geographic Expeditions of Jasper Morrello which is a mix of film and CGI and is probably inspired by Prince Achmed. I caught this on SBS about 6 months ago and loved it! It's pretty bizarre but the style is amazing. It's won a number of awards including Winner of 2 AFI Awards, 2005: BEST SHORT ANIMATION (Anthony Lucas) and OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN CRAFT IN A NON-FEATURE, Production Design (Anthony Lucas).

All beautiful stuff and must haves.
