Bunny & D'Avino

Sounds like the name of a band.

I haven't had time to do much digging into indie animation lately, and also just haven't had much luck running across stuff, but luckily I recently discovered that Jeff Hasulo does the job for me over at hydrocephalicbunny, a great blog about indie animation that has not only alerted me to lots of very cool obscure animation on and off the web that I'd never heard of, but additionally keeps me giggling like a schoolgirl all the while - no mean feat.

A while back my main man Philip alerted me to this page featuring a number of videos made by a very cool indie animator from a few decades back named Carmen D'Avino. Of the few I've managed to check out so far, I get a strong vibe of Kandinsky/Klee influence, touched by a great droll sense of humor.

The yearly Image Forum festival happening over in To/Kyo/to over the next few days is giving top billing to a film I've been wanting to see for a while, Run Wrake's Rabbit, which is playing in a program of English shorts. They're also showing a program of abstract masters Fischinger/Lye/Whitney and premiering Koji Yamamura's omnibus Tokyo Loop. Wish I was there.
