Ryan, the Oscar winner for Best Short Film, is a canadian 3d and 2d animated masterpiece. I wish I could provide more than the material already provided by Andy Baio, but I just felt like you all should see this. It's the true story of Ryan Landis, a brilliant artist devastated by the real world. It's also the story of his impact on the director. That really doesn't do it justice. Please just click. apology inside

sorry if this falls into the GYOBF category. I honestly just wanted to share it with the community. Any personal touches are more a symptom of my own inability to properly emphasize how incredible this short is.

Also, this is via waxy. Forgot to throw it in there before posting.

For something like this, it helps to search the base url (nfb.ca) just to see what comes up. If it's the New York Times you're linking to, it may not be that helpful, but in this case it returns the previous post right away.

I watched it with coffee this morning; it is great.

Searching on "Ryan" turns up the previous post(s) as well (both if you do it from day one).

It always helps to try scrolling down the front page.

Am I the only one that saw GYOBF and read "Get Your Own BoyFriend"?


Yes.
Yes I am.

Cyphill: No. No, you're not, embarrassingly enough.

They took down the movie! I watched it just this morning, and I was going to show my dad, but they've taken it down. Does anybody have a backup?
