Welcome to “Free Film Tuesday”! (formerly known as “Free Film Friday”.) Every Friday Tuesday we will be sharing a short free film for you to enjoy. Tell us what you think, and what you’d like to see us present...
Before I talk about this week’s film, I just have to tell you something. Did you know that the National Film Board of Canada has 3D movies on their site? And, AND, they will send you a pair of 3D glasses to watch them. For free!
I really want to post a few 3D movies, so everyone run out and request your pair of glasses today. The ones you get at the movies don’t work with online videos, sadly. Or at least, the ones I got at Clash of the Titans didn’t. Yes, I paid money to watch that. And yes, I enjoyed it. Don’t judge me!
Back to our regularly scheduled programming…
All of the characters in When the Day Breaks are animals, including a stuffy old rooster (complete with hat that accommodates his comb), a timid rabbit as the sales clerk, and a bulldog police officer, just to name a few. The film has a scratchy, newsreel quality to the animation, which was achieved by painting and drawing on photocopies.
If it looks familiar to you, it may be because of the international attention When the Day Breaks received. The film was nominated for an Oscar, and won a few Cannes Film Festival awards as well.
