The Zit

I did have an opportunity to see the very creative, short animated film “The Zit”. Veteran Disney animator Mike Blum who has worked on projects such as “Chicken Little” and “Dinosaur” has directed a memorable short film about a boy discovering a zit right before going to the big school dance. The irritating pimple, however, begins to grow, taking on a life of its own. A struggle ensues before the problem is resolved in a unique, albeit gross, manner. Over a three-year period seventy Disney animators worked on the four minute film in their spare time. The attention to detail and comedic timing is reminiscent of some of the best computer-animated films of the past few years.
--Currently showing at numerous festivals around the world.
