Pavel The Animator

You may recall me muttering something about a clip I saw at Movie-Con in which Adam Buxton played the part of a mental East European animator with deep, deep personal issues. Well, I don't know if they meant to do it but Empire stuck it in the middle of an article on Harry Potter, so I thought I'd do the decent thing and share it.

Expect this to be taken down when they realise what they've done, and I shall await various cease and desist orders likewise. Not that I'll be able to do anything about it if it happens tonight because I'm off to see Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish babbling at each other at the BFI. Huzzah!

  1. It is noteworthy that the work of Pavel is closer to reality than a regular cartoon. He asks the big question about life itself. There is no purpose, in particular when you are sitting in front of a 19:9 screen and gaze at it for hours while sliding a plastic dome shape around with one hand and the other ready to tap the keyboard or other futile tasks.

    Comedy has an amazing ability to make a joke and convey a profound idea at the same time.

    Many a true word is spoken in jest.
