Animation Great Don Hertzfeldt’s “Rejected” Online (but not for long)

Animation Great Don Hertzfeldt's "Rejected" Online (but not for long)

I’m pretty sure that animation maverick Don Hertzfeldt doesn’t put his films online as a matter of financial livelihood, because he sells DVDs of his work through his website. Now I’m a big advocate of a marketplace unhindered by draconian anti-piracy measures, but when it comes to an independent artist’s work who probably ekes out a small living from his creative endeavors, you’ve got to draw the line somewhere. So by putting up this YouTube video of his hilarious, landmark short “Rejected,” I offer up both a tribute to one of my favorite animated films of recent years as well as a shout-out to Mr. Hertzfeldt, who might want to censor YouTube user “anarchy989” for copyright violations.
