2D animation is one of those things. I don't mind the prevalence of 3D animated films, like the Toy Story, and Shrek movies. I don't hate them, nor do I want them to go away. Sadly, I don't love them like most people, though. I've never been able to figure out why that is, but for some reason, I feel like traditional 2D animation just speaks to me more. It offers me that immersion that I'm always going on about--that sense of escapism, that I crave.
Regardless of your stance on animation, do yourself a favor and watch this award-winning black and white animated short from Walt Disney Animation Studios. It stylishly tells a good story in a beautiful, yet funny way. Although it is a 2D short, it does borrow from contemporary computer generated 3D techniques at times.
