Fox Woman, Priit Tender, 2002

The first time I saw this it was 4:30 in the morning and I couldn't find any information about it whatsoever.

Seems like an appropriate way to watch it.

Having Soul, Riho Unt, 2002

This is a somewhat talky film from Estonian puppet animation studio Nukufilm, and I couldn't find a version with subtitles.
The synopsis from Nukufilm's site:

Based on the short story “Living Dolls” by estonian writer Anton Hansen Tammsaare.
“Having Soul” is the story of a little boy and his big dream – toy soldiers with souls, who would close their eyes, when dying.

I'm OK

Mostly. I accidentally marked the date on Saturday's post for June 1st and misdated today's post as well. Then I freaked out and posted tomorrow's cartoon today for a few minutes, until Cavin told me what I did with yesterday's cartoon. anyway, I fixed it, everything is back to mostly normal. As you were.

Andong Agimat: Kanya ang Kalye, Arnold Arre, 2011

Filipino graphic novelist Arnold Arre wanted to see his superhero Andong Agimat come to life.

As a graphic novelist, I've always been frustrated with the limitations of the static comic book page. I wanted to see my drawings in motion and have the luxury to set them to sound and particularly music. Armed with experience from the many flip books I made as a kid, I managed to make my very first animated film, Andong Agimat: Kanya ang Kalye ("The Streets are His").. It's only 4 minutes long but it took around two weeks to make. I really had fun working on this and I hope you'll enjoy watching it. :)
