A good chuckle for the long holiday weekend: From the Atom Films creation Creature Comforts, a series of Claymation animals discuss what is art. The discussion encompasses a variety of media, from painting to dance to music. Watch for some of the sly jokes, such as the dogs playing poker (“DPP”) discussing art (the infamous series of DPP paintings is often the subject of “what is art?” debates), and the solo dog discussing his printmaking creations (i.e. tracking in dirt).
The Creature Comforts spots are well-written, often bringing up several sides of an issue in a balanced manner with large doses of understated humor thrown in, such as their Oscar-winning spot interviewing animals in a zoo about their situation – the first video that comes up when you visit the Atom Films/Creature Comforts page.
