The Only Canadian Stop of...
Nearly two years in the making and the final chapter in the trilogy, the 23-minute 'It’s Such A Beautiful Day' is Hertzfeldt’s longest and most ambitious piece to-date, blending traditional animation, experimental optical effects, trick photography and new digital hybrids printed out one frame at a time. The film was also captured entirely on an antique 35 mm animation stand, one of the last operating cameras of its kind in North America.
The Toronto Animation Arts Festival International (TAAFI) was pleased to present an evening with cult animator and Academy Award nominee Don Hertzfeldt (Rejected, Billy's Balloon, the Meaning of Life) for the only Canadian tour screening of his latest film, It’s Such a Beautiful Day on March 5th at The Royal Cinema. The Films were followed by an on-stage interview and Q&A moderated by Ellen Bessen. Ted's Collision provided a place to meet and greet Don Hertzfeldt who made sure to talk with all of the fans and fellow filmakers in attendance at the intimate after party.
