Like many people, my introduction to Don Hertzfeldt’s work was his Academy Award-nominated short film Rejected, which earned him a reputation as an animator with a bizarre, twisted and irreverent sense of humour. And for a while, it seemed like that was Hertzfeldt’s schtick, but last year I finally got around to watching It’s Such a Beautiful Day, and wow, this guy has matured into an amazing filmmaker. His latest short, World of Tomorrow looks absolutely incredible from this trailer, and to date this has to be his most visually rich work. I cannot wait to see the finished product…and I don’t have long to wait!
World of Tomorrow comes out on March 31, 2015.
