Craig Foster and I ceated a short animated segment on a new documentary film called, "Paper or Plastic?", that will be premiering at the 2008 Los Angeles Film Festival on Friday, June 20th at 7:30pm. It is a very good film, with great characters and a fun story. Plus a little silly animation called "How to be a Good Bagger".

From the directors of the doc:

About excelling in life at whatever you do, "Paper or Plastic?" is
a character-driven documentary feature that follows eight
contestants and their dedicated supporters from around the U.S.
as they get ready for the National Grocery Bagging competition in
Las Vegas. Speed, accuracy and heart will determine who is best
qualified to ask you, "Paper or plastic?"

May I step out of your post's context to ask you to create a blog entry about the Wall•e closing credits? They are fantastic and merit their own post to receive comments and praise!
