If I steady my binocs ontop my car I can see the moons as displayed here...

BBC Animated ~ The Tempest

Favorite lines:

Me, poor man, my library
Was dukedom large enough...

Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again: and then, in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open and show riches
Ready to drop upon me that, when I waked,
I cried to dream again.

We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

O brave new world that has such people in it...

The Little Broadcast



...I went searching for Puppetoons on YouTube -- this was the lease dated one I could find. Many, I fear, suffer from a past prejudice (this one perhaps included). However, the stop-motion work, lighting, and presention are so intersting--it is worth a look.
