Allergy to Originality 1

After spending the majority of the week fighting a terrible cold, this Sundance short, created for the New York Times Op-Doc series, brought a huge warm smile to my face. In fact it made me eager to seek out more materials by animator and illustrator Drew Christie. The short effectively explores the role replication and appropriation has played in the history of the artistic landscape. It is a brilliant piece that makes you both laugh and think. Allergy to Originality is a truly original and inventive short, but you probably already knew that from Wikipedia…trust me this point will make more sense once you see the film.
