I'm so excited to have this as part of my animation collection! Thank you guys so much for continuing this piece of history ❤
Super fast shipping. Great vendor. Incredible film! Absolutely recommended film, expertly researched and shot with tons of fascinating extras. Can't recommend highly enough. Kevin Schreck's documentary on this unknown "greatest animation film that never was" is a cautionary tale. Whether you're a filmmaker, animator or simply a creative artist, you owe it to yourself to watch this beautifully made film.
This was an amazing and informative documentary for an animation fan! The filmmaker knows how hungry us fans are for content and delivers a fully loaded package. The broad perspectives “cobbled” together make this a unique and moving experience compared to other docs regarding this subject matter. Also, the art on display, rare photos, and footage are revelatory! The DVDs came fast and in excellent condition which I appreciate. Thank you very much!!
Didn't realize when I ordered this that the seller was also the filmmaker as well. First, I want to say what an amazing document of an impossible project; kind of like an animated Burden of Dreams. I'd wanted to see this for a long time. Second, when one of the discs came loose in shipping, he sent replacement right away, no questions asked. Anyone who loves old school animation needs to see this documentary. This is what independent film should be.Can't recommend it highly enough.
