Michael Dudok de Wit so impressed me that his Father and Daughter was selected as my favourite animation featured last year. His commercials for United Airlines were exemplary. The five commercials presented today were for Acme Filmworks and its AT&T Campaign (Young & Rubicam/NY). Shorter than the unusually long ones for UA they have that distinctive essence of Michael - heavy cartridge paper absorbing the brush, dipped liberally in water and an almost exclusively blue palette. He also has the surgeon's scalpel: neat, sharp cuts exposing the heart-strings. Although educated in his native Netherlands, Michael graduated from the West Surrey College of Art in 1978 and is now without doubt one of the great animators of our time. If only all ads were like this I'd miss the programmes. Founded in 1990 by Executive Producer Ron Diamond, Acme is outstanding for its quality of work. The films then, in no particular order: I'm Okay, Wheels, Catch, Crickets , and Campus Family.
