An alright collection of shorts
by Daniel -
I picked this up pretty much cause it was cheap and looked interesting. The final result: It was alright. The shorts, which are 6, 8, and 2 minutes long, are something you would see from Newgrounds or early Youtube. The animations are from late 90s/early 2000s and they definitely show their age, but they're not bad. The behind the scenes, which is about as long as all the shorts put together, gives you insight about White Radish, but didn't interest me as much, seeing how I never heard about them until I purchased this DVD. But it did make me interested if they are still intact today. I did some research on White Radish and director Shawn the Touched, and there's nothing current. There's some animation from mid 2000s and some blog posts from early 2010s, but that's about it. Oh well. My recommendation: Get this if you like White Radish and/or old school animation. If not, you're not missing much.
