Animations Galore!

…or two animations anyway. Nina Paley is posting clips from her feature length piece “Sita Sings the Blues,” which is a rendition of the Ramayana set to old blues songs. In her FAQs, Paley talks about the combination of Indian myth and the Blues:

These songs – Mean to Me, Am I Blue, Daddy Won’t You Please Come Home, Moanin’ Low – tell the same story I found in the Ramayana. Woman loves man, man does her wrong, woman loves man anyway and suffers horribly. They’re the Blues; they’re Sita’s story, and mine. It seemed a natural fit.

Brilliant.

Another interesting project, Elephants Dream is an “open source movie.” I haven’t watched the whole product yet, but it looks very strange. Conceptually, this fascinates me in the same way as the Swarm of Angels project. Grassroots cinema.
