Watch: Exclusive Clip of Bill Plympton Talking About Animation Great Winsor McCay in New Doc
ShortsHD, the network dedicated to short films, recently broadcast the world premiere of "Bill Plympton Restores McCay's 'The Flying House,'" a documentary short about how Plympton and his team are working to restore one of the earliest animations by the father of animation, Winsor McCay -- his classic 1921 short film "The Flying House."
ShortsHD is re-airing the film tomorrow, the night of August 2, at 12:30 am, and the following night at 1 am. In the exclusive clip below, Plympton and Matthew Modine, who voices the short, discuss McCay's talent as an animator and the charm of "The Flying House."
