I read that Don Hertzfeldt’s student film of 1996, Genre, is one of his least favourites. I love it. It opens with stop motion footage of Don drawing the little bunny rabbit that is prodded and poked into life before the title credit appears and our animator toys with the genres of the film world, from children’s movies to porn to science fiction. Not all the jokes work but those that do are genuinely funny. My particular favourite is the moment when the long eared one is forced to boogie for the kids at the children's party - I've been there. I received three DVDs for my birthday: Don's 1995-2005 collection was one and much better quality than YouTube for a little matter of $24.
