University of California, Santa Barbara The University of California, Santa Barbara (commonly referred to as UC Santa Barbara or UCSB) is a publicresearch university and one of the 10 general campuses of the University of California system. The main campus is located on a 1,022-acre (414 ha) site in Goleta, California, United States, 8 miles (13 km) from Santa Barbara and 100 miles (160 km) northwest of Los Angeles. Founded in 1891 as an independent teachers' college, UCSB joined the University of California system in 1944 and is the third-oldest general-education campus in the system.  SONY VAIO VGN-NR21J/S Laptop Keyboard UCSB is one of America's Public Ivy universities, which recognizes top public research universities in the United States. The university is a comprehensive doctoral university and is organized into five colleges offering 87 undergraduate degrees and 55 graduate degrees. The campus is the 6th-largest in the UC system by enrollment with 18,620 undergraduate and 3,065 graduate students.[3] ACER Aspire 4810TZ-4011 Laptop Keyboard The university granted 5,812 bachelors, 578 masters, and 354 PhD degrees in 2010–2011.[3]In 2012, UCSB was ranked 41st among "National Universities" and 10th among public universities by U.S. News & World Report.[5] The university was also ranked 35th worldwide by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings[6] and 34th worldwide (6th worldwide for engineering) by the Academic Ranking of World Universities in 2012.[7][8]HP Mini 210-1019EG Laptop Keyboard UC Santa Barbara is a "very high activity" research university and spent $191.2 million on research expenditures in the 2007 fiscal year, 97th-largest in the United States.[9] UCSB houses twelve national research centers,[10] including the renowned Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.[11] UCSB faculty includes five Nobel Prize laureates, one Fields Medalist, 29 members of the National Academy of Sciences, 27 members of the National Academy of Engineering, and 23 members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. UCSB was elected to the Association of American Universities in 1995. UCSB was the No. 3 host on the ARPAnet. HP 432976-001 Laptop Keyboard The UC Santa Barbara Gauchos compete in the NCAA Division I Big West Conference. The Gauchos have won NCAA national championships in men's soccer and men's water polo. SONY 147977821 Laptop Keyboard UCSB traces its origins back to the Anna Blake School which was founded in 1891 and offered training in home economics and industrial arts.[12][13] The Anna Blake School was taken over by the state in 1909 and became the Santa Barbara State Normal School. The campus was on the Riviera, portions of which house today's Riviera Theatre. By 1913, the Riviera neighborhood was established and housing for up to 40 faculty and students built. (This housing is today's El Encanto Hotel.) [14]HP Pavilion dv6-3178ee Laptop Keyboard 1921, a liberal arts program was authorized and the school was renamed again to Santa Barbara State College. Growth was so rapid that a new campus was needed. When the 1925 Earthquake destroyed Dibblee's imposing stone mansion, Punta Del Castillo, on the cliff overlooking the harbor, land was available, and, by 1932, it had been purchased for the college. Remains of the mansion were cleared and the stone was used to build the retaining wall on Cliff Drive. The first building was completed in 1941.[15] HP Pavilion dv6-2140ef Laptop Keyboard Intense lobbying by an interest group in the City of Santa Barbara, led by Thomas Storke and Pearl Chase, persuaded the State Legislature, Governor Earl Warren, and the Regents of the University of California to move the State College over to the more research-oriented University of California system in 1944. The State College system sued to stop the takeover, DELL 01R28D Laptop Keyboard but the Governor did not support the suit. A state initiative was passed, however, to stop subsequent conversions of State Colleges to University of California campuses.[16] From 1944 to 1958 the school was known as Santa Barbara College of the University of California, before taking on its current name. When the vacated Marine Corps training station in Goleta was purchased for the rapidly-growing college, Santa Barbara City College moved into the vacated State College buildings.[15]ACER TravelMate 3002WTMi Laptop Keyboard Originally, the Regents envisioned a small, several thousand-student liberal arts college, a so-called "Williams College of the West", at Santa Barbara. Chronologically, UCSB is the third general-education campus of the University of California, after Berkeley and UCLA (the only other state campus to have been acquired by the UC system). HP 640208-001 Laptop Keyboard The original campus the Regents acquired in Santa Barbara was located on only 100 acres (40 ha) of largely unusable land on a seaside mesa. The availability of a 400-acre (160 ha) portion of the land used as Marine Corps Air Station Santa Barbara until 1946 on another seaside mesa inGoleta, which the Regents could acquire for free from the federal government, led to that site becoming the Santa Barbara campus in 1949. Originally, only 3000–3500 students were anticipated, but the post WWII baby boom led to the designation of general campus in 1958, Compaq Presario CQ57 Series Laptop Keyboard along with a name change from "Santa Barbara College" to "University of California, Santa Barbara," and the discontinuation of the industrial arts program for which the State college was famous. AChancellor, Samuel B. Gould, was appointed in 1959. All of this change was done in accordance with the California Master Plan for Higher Education. DELL Inspiron 1750 Laptop Keyboard In 1959, UCSB Professor Douwe Stuurman hosted the English writer Aldous Huxley as the university's first visiting professor.[17] Huxley delivered a lectures series called "The Human Situation".[18]HP G72-b49WM Laptop Keyboard In the late 1960s and early 1970s UCSB became nationally known as a hotbed of anti-Vietnam War activity. A bombing at the school's faculty club in 1969 killed the caretaker, Dover Sharp. In the spring 1970 multiple occasions of arson occurred, including a burning of the Bank of America branch building in the student community of Isla Vista, during which time one male student, Kevin Moran, was shot and killed by police.[19] UCSB's anti-Vietnam activity impelled then GovernorRonald Reagan to impose a curfew and order the National Guard to enforce it. Weapon-carrying guardsmen were a common sight on campus and in Isla Vista during this time. DELL Vostro 1014 Laptop Keyboard In 1995, UCSB was elected to the Association of American Universities, an organization of leading research universities, with a membership consisting of 59 universities in the United States (both public and private) and two universities in Canada.  HP Pavilion dv6-3132tx Laptop Keyboard UCSB is located on cliffs directly above the Pacific Ocean. UCSB's campus is completely autonomous from local government and has not been annexed by the city of Santa Barbara and thus is not part of the city.[21][22] While it appears closer to the recently formed city of Goleta, a parcel of the City of Santa Barbara that forms a strip of "city" through the ocean to the Santa Barbara airport, runs through the west entrance to the university campus. Although UCSB has a Santa Barbara mailing address, HP Pavilion dv9755ed Laptop CPU Cooling Fan as do other unincorporated areas around the city, only this entry parcel is in the Santa Barbara city limits. Like all other UC and CSU campuses, it is self-governing and cannot be incorporated into either city. The campus is divided into four parts: Main (East) Campus 708 acres (287 ha) that houses all academic units plus the majority of undergraduate housing, Storke Campus, West Campus and North Campus. The campuses surround the community of Isla Vista. ACER eMachines E725 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan UCSB is one of a few universities in the United States with its own beach. The campus, bordered on three sides by the Pacific Ocean, has miles of coastline as well as its own lagoon. The campus has numerous walking and bicycle paths across campus, around the lagoon and along the beach. TOSHIBA V000120460 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Much of the campus' early architecture was designed by famed architect William Pereira and his partner Charles Luckman, and made heavy use of custom tinted and patterned concrete block. This design element was carried over into many of the school's subsequent buildings. The Lagoon is a large body of water adjacent to the coastline, between San Rafael and San Miguel Residence Halls. It was created from a former tidal salt marsh flat and is fed by a combination of run-off and ocean water used by the Marine Science Building's aquatic life tanks; thus, it is a unique combination of fresh and salt water. Many of the older campus buildings are being replaced with newer, IBM Lenovo Thinkpad T410 Series Laptop CPU Cooling Fan more modern facilities. The UCSB Libraries, consisting of the Davidson Library and the Arts Library, hold more than 3 million bound volumes[23] and millions of microforms, government documents, manuscripts, maps, satellite and aerial images, sound recordings, and other materials. The 24 Hour Study Room, formerly known as the RBR (Reserved Book Room), is adjacent to the Davidson Library, which is located in the middle of the UCSB campus.  HP Pavilion dv7-3085dx Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Campbell Hall is the university's largest lecture hall with 862 seats. It is also the main venue for the UCSB Arts and Lectures series, which presents special performances, films, and lectures for the UCSB campus and Santa Barbara community. SONY VGN-FE770G Laptop Keyboard Storke Tower, completed in 1969, is the tallest building in Santa Barbara County. It can be seen from most places on campus, and it overlooks Storke Plaza. It is home to a five-octave, 61-bell carillon. KCSB 91.9 and the Daily Nexus have headquarters beneath Storke Tower.The UCSB Family Vacation Center founded in 1969, is a summer family camp located on campus that draws over 2,000 guests each summer. The staff of over 50 includes many UCSB students who have been extensively trained as camp counselors. Packard Bell Easynote TM05 Laptop Keyboard Layout The university (itself termed a "campus" of the University of California) is divided into two physical campuses, a West Campus and East Campus. The vast majority of university facilities, including all lecture halls and laboratories, are in the East Campus. The two campuses are connected by a large strip (known as the North and Storke Campuses) to the north which contain university housing and athletic fields. Thus, the university surrounds Isla Vista on three sides. ACER TravelMate 5742 Laptop Keyboard West Campus, aside from a few buildings dedicated to faculty housing, has largely been leased out to private organizations, and includes a school for the mentally disabled and a large nature preserve. The largest sand dunes on the south-facing coast of the Santa Barbara Channel are located here. TOSHIBA Satellite L755-SP5101CL Laptop Keyboard The East Campus centers around two quadrangles, separated from each other by the main library and bus circle, and the life sciences buildings. Along the western quad are Storke Plaza and buildings housing the various arts, social sciences, and humanities departments. The Student Resource Building and the Events Center are also located along this quad. Surrounding the wider, park-like eastern quad are buildings housing the physical sciences departments and the College of Engineering. Directly to the south of, but not adjacent to, the eastern quad are the life sciences and psychology departments, as well as most of the on-campus housing. The southernmost section of the campus is dominated by the lagoon. The peninsula extending from the beach into the lagoon contains an elaborate labyrinth. HP G62-361TX Laptop Keyboard The new Ocean Science Education building will house the Outreach Center for Teaching Ocean Science (OCTOS) and incorporate the educational outreach program of UCSB's Marine Science Institute (MS) and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (CSMS) [24] OCTOS is designed to expand science education for kindergarten through 12th graders. It will also provide opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, who will be voluntary guides, to learn about teaching science. Lenovo 3000 Y500 Laptop Keyboard The project will cost an estimated $20 million dollars, $8 million of which has already been provided by the federal government. The remaining $12 million will reportedly be made available through private funds raised by the university.[25] The building was supposed to be completed in August 2011 but the university terminated their contract with their contractor because he was many months behind schedule and did not complete the building by the projected date. So at this time, the project remains unfinished. ACER Aspire 5742 Laptop Keyboard From 2005–2009, UCSB was ranked fourth in terms of relative citation impact in the U.S. (behind MIT, Caltech, and Princeton University) according to Thomson Reuters.[29][30] UCSB hosts 12 National Research Centers, including the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, theSouthern California Earthquake Center, the Center for Spatial Studies, an affiliate of the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis, and theCalifornia Nanosystems Institute. Eight of these centers are supported by the National Science Foundation.[10] UCSB is also home to Microsoft Station Q, a research group working on topological quantum computing where American mathematician and Fields Medalist Michael Freedman is the director.[31] HP Mini 210-2013tu Laptop Keyboard UCSB is known for its extensive biking system. Bicycles have exclusive right of way on paths throughout East Campus. Bicycle stands and lockers are ubiquitous.[26] UCSB is unique among bicycle-heavy areas in that most travel is done within a small radius.[27]TOSHIBA Satellite L300 Laptop Keyboard HP 634139-001 Laptop Keyboard The focus of the University of California is on research.[28] Like all University of California campuses, UCSB prioritizes academic development over vocational learning. Undergraduate teaching is centered on lectures, with larger lecture classes having sections. Sections may be tutorial style, or they may be set up as seminars or discussions. For undergraduates, UCSB confers both B.A. and B.S. degrees. Music majors may pursue a Bachelor of Music degree. Graduate teaching involves seminar style classes and an emphasis on research and further study. UCSB confers M.A., M.S., and PhD degrees. Those studying music may pursue a M.M.or D.M.A. degree. Students pursuing a career in education may receive a M.Ed. or Ed.D. degree.

DELL Inspiron N4050 laptop keyboard One non-sanctioned sport also draws many students to UCSB: surfing. The on-campus beaches include a number of decent surfing sites, including "Poles," "Campus Point," "Depressions" and "Sands" and "Devereaux Point" on the west campus. Because Campus Beach actually faces South and East, and is shielded by the Santa Barbara Channel Islands, the surf is usually quite small. However, a large North or West swell can wrap in to create great waves which are typically very clean and good for surfing. UCSB has a surf team that competes in NSSA (National Scholastic Surfing Association) competitions, and is generally considered one of the best in the nation. They continued their reputation by winning a record 14th National Title at the college level in 2010's finals. TOSHIBA NSK-TBD01 laptop keyboard Morgan J.

HP Pavilion ze5 Laptop Keyboard Don Hertzfeldt (born August 1, 1976) is the creator of many animated films, including Everything Will Be OKand the Academy-Award nominated Rejected. His films have received over 200 awards and have been presented around the world. The popularity of Hertzfeldt's work is unprecedented in independent animation.[1] In 2009, the Sundance Film Festival wrote, "If cinephiles think shorts don't generate the same sort of hype and fanbase as feature films, they obviously haven't heard of Don Hertzfeldt."[2]HP Envy 17-2099el Laptop Keyboard In his book "The World History of Animation," author Stephen Cavalier writes, "Hertzfeldt is either a unique phenomenon or perhaps an example of a new way forward for individual animators surviving independently on their own terms... he attracts the kind of fanatical support from the student and alternative crowds usually associated with indie rock bands." [3]HP G56-141US Laptop Keyboard In 2012, Hertzfeldt combined all three chapters of his short film trilogy about a man named Bill (Everything Will Be OK, I Am So Proud of You, and "It's Such a Beautiful Day"), to create a seamless new feature film out of the story. His first feature film, the movie shares the same title as the third short film in the series, "It's Such a Beautiful Day", and went into limited release in movie theaters in autumn 2012. The LA Film Critics Association named it runner-up for Best Animated Feature Film of 2012 and the annual Indiewire critics poll ranked Hertzfeldt the 9th Best Film Director of 2012.[4]. The AV Club film critics ranked it # 8 on their list of the Best Films of 2012.[5]Lenovo 3000 N500 Laptop Keyboard Hertzfeldt supports himself and his movies entirely from self-distribution, such as ticket sales from theatrical screenings, DVD sales, and television broadcasts. He has refused all advertising work.[6] He has twice gone on nationwide tours in support of new films (a 22-city theatrical tour in support of I Am So Proud of You in 2008-09, and a 30-city tour in support of "It's Such a Beautiful Day" in 2011-12). "An Evening with Don Hertzfeldt" presented a 35mm selection of his work followed by an onstage interview and audience chat with him.[7]DELL Latitude E5500 Laptop Keyboard Hertzfeldt was the youngest director named in the "They Shoot Pictures, Don't They" list of "The 100 Important Animation Directors" of all time, [8] and in 2012, Hertzfeldt was ranked # 16 in an animation industry and historian survey of the "Top 100 Most Influential People in Animation." [9] In 2010, he received the San Francisco International Film Festival's "Persistence of Vision" Lifetime Achievement Award at the age of 33. SONY Vaio VPC-EE3WFX/BJ Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt lives in Austin, Texas. He spent many years in Santa Barbara, California after attending college there. He has kept a continuous blog on his website since 1999. Hertzfeldt was born in Fremont, California where he attended local schools and drew homemade comic books. At 15, he began to teach himself animation with a small video camera.[10] Two of Hertzfeldt's teenage VHS cartoons can be seen on the "Bitter Films: Volume 1" DVD collection. FUJITSU MCF-S6055AM05B Laptop CPU Cooling Fan While at film school he was drawn to animation as it was a less expensive form to work in. He could not afford to buy the multiple rolls of 16mm film required to shoot live action. "I think I've always approached animation from a strange angle, a bit like a regular filmmaker who just happens to animate. Editing, writing, sound, those are the things that usually come first in my head. Animation is often just the busy work I need to get through to connect the dots and tell the story." [11]SONY Vaio VPC-EE31FX Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt has never held any job other than creating his animated films, not even in his youth.[12] His earliest video animations found film festival exposure, and in film school at the University of California, Santa Barbara he was able to find international distribution for each of his 16mm student films. Toshiba Satellite A215-S4767 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt's work commonly features hand-drawn stick figures, in stories of black humor, surrealism, and tragicomedy. Some films contain deeper existential and philosophical themes while others are more straightforwardly slapstick and absurdist. His animation is created traditionally with pen and paper, often with minimal digital aid. Hertzfeldt uses antique 16mm or 35mm film cameras to photograph his drawings and very often employs old-fashioned special effect techniques such as multiple exposures SONY Vaio VPC-EE31FX/T Laptop CPU Cooling Fan , in-camera mattes, and experimental photography (significantly used in works such as Everything Will Be OK and I Am So Proud of You). While some of these techniques are as established as an occasional stop-motion animation sequence (as in Intermission in the Third Dimension) or a universe of moving stars created by back-lit pin holes (The Meaning of Life), other effects are new innovations on classical methods, as seen with the rippling and blurring paper landscapes of Rejected or the in-camera compositing of multiple, split-screen windows of action in the Everything Will Be OK films.[13][14][15] HP Pavilion dv7-1020eg Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Since 1999, Hertzfeldt has photographed all his films on a 35mm Richardson animation camera stand, believed to be the same camera that photographed many of the early Peanuts cartoons in the 1960s and 1970s.[16] Built in the late 1940s, it is reportedly one of the last remaining functioning cameras of its kind left in America (if not the world), and Hertzfeldt finds it to be a crucial element in the creation of his films and their unique visuals.[17]HP Pavilion G72-c55DX Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Discussing film and digital technology with The New York Times, Hertzfeldt noted: I don't know why these things are always framed as a big dumb cage match: Hand-drawn versus computers, film versus digital. We have over 100 years now of amazing film technology to play with, I don't understand why any artists would want to throw any of their tools out of the box. Many people assume that because I shoot on film and animate on paper I must be doing things the hard way, Toshiba Satellite L645-S4038 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan when in fact my last four movies would have been visually impossible to produce digitally. The only thing that matters is what actually winds up on the big screen, not how you got it there. You could make a cartoon in crayons about a red square that falls in unrequited love with a blue circle, and there wouldn’t be a dry eye in the house if you know how to tell a story.[18]TOSHIBA Satellite l25-s1196 laptop keyboard It's not unusual for Hertzfeldt to single-handedly write, direct, produce, animate, photograph, edit, perform voices, record and mix sound, and/or compose music for one of his films, at times requiring years to complete a single short. The animation alone for one of his films may often require tens of thousands of drawings. SONY VAIO VGN-NW125J/T laptop keyboard Hertzfeldt frequently scores his pictures with classical music and opera. The music of Tchaikovsky, Bizet, Smetana, Beethoven, Richard Strauss, and Wagner have all appeared in his films. On occasion, Hertzfeldt has also scored portions of his films himself, with a guitar or keyboard. HP K031202I1 laptop keyboard Hertzfeldt's early films have been credited with being a prominent influence on surrealism and absurdism in animation in the 2000s, as well as influencing Adult Swim style animated comedy.[19] In 2008, Comedy Central noted his work as having "influenced an entire generation of filmmakers."[20]SONY VAIO VGN-N37GH/B laptop keyboard His more recent films, such as The Meaning of LifeEverything Will Be OK, and I Am So Proud of You, expanded upon his signature style of dark humor to explore deeper themes of existentialism and life and death philosophy. Critics have favorably compared these shorts to the work of Stanley Kubrick[21] and David Lynch,[22] respectively. Everything Will Be OKwas described as "probably the best work he's done in his very incredible and consistently amazing young career."[23]TOSHIBA Satellite A200-1AB laptop keyboard Hertzfeldt's films are regularly found in film festivals around the world, touring animation programs like the Animation Show, and on DVD collections. The cartoons are also featured occasionally on television: MTV, Bravo, Via X, Sundance Channel, IFC, Showtime, and the Cartoon Network being a few channels that have carried his work internationally. HP G62-b09SA Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The popularity of Hertzfeldt's shorts has led to many Internet bootlegs, bringing his work to an audience of millions. Though he's unhappy with the poor quality most of these online videos offer (as well as the frequent re-editing of them), he says he is not interested in harassing fans. In the FAQ of his website, Hertzfeldt simply notes that movies are not meant to be seen on the Internet: "If you've only seen a film downgraded on the Internet or some strange miniature device, in many ways you haven't really seen it yet.  SONY Vaio VGN-SZ4MN/B Laptop CPU Cooling Fan YouTube is great for home videos of your cat falling off the roof but it is not really the proper setting for "cinema"... Movies are meant to be seen in the dark, hopefully with an audience, and with your undivided attention - this last one is non-negotiable."[6] Recently however, Hertzfeldt has allowed "official" versions of The Meaning of Life andEverything will be OK to appear online in high quality on sites like MUBI and YouTube. Wisdom Teeth also debuted online after being acquired by Showtime.  Toshiba Satellite A205-S4557 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt prefers to not sell any of his animation artwork. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, his website Bitter Films annually auctioned off artwork instead to raise thousands of dollars for local Santa Barbara charities. Other original drawings have been occasionally given away through the Bitter Films online store through special promotions. Because Hertzfeldt also rarely does signings, his artwork is very rare for animation collectors or casual fans to own.  HP Pavilion dv7-3150el Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt made four 16mm animated student films while majoring in film at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Ah, L'Amour and Genre were produced at the ages of 18 and 19. Ah, L'Amour would win the HBO Comedy Arts Festival Grand Prize for "World's Funniest Cartoon." [24]HP Pavilion dv6-3109ea Laptop CPU Cooling Fan His first dialogue short, Lily and Jim, was released in 1997, and tells the story of a disastrous blind date, rife with awkward conversations. Its partially improvised vocal performances helped the short win twenty five awards, including the Grand Prize at the New Orleans Film Festival.[25]Toshiba Satellite A205-S5809 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan His final student cartoon, Billy's Balloon, is about an inexplicable attack on small children by malevolent balloons. It was nominated for the Short Film Palme d'Or at the1999 Cannes Film Festival, and won the Grand Jury Award at the 1999 Slamdance Film Festival. In total it won thirty three awards.[26] The popularity of each student short at film and animation festivals - and eventually around the world from screening on MTV and other networks - helped fund the next one, and eventually financed the production of his first film after college. HP 606575-001 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Soon after graduating from film school, Hertzfeldt purchased his own 35mm rostrum camera, and made his next animated short, Rejected. Released in theaters in 2000, the short won dozens of awards, was nominated for an Oscar, and is an enduring cult classic that is frequently quoted and referenced in pop culture.[27]SONY VAIO PCG-6N1L Laptop CPU Cooling Fan ans of the cartoon have been known to wear costumes, re-enact their favorite scenes in fan films, and some have had tattoos made of their favorite characters.[28] Public screenings of the short sometimes become a "Rocky Horror Picture Show-esque feedback loop" of fans reciting favorite lines back at the screen.[29] The short's enduring popularity has led the film to be described as "this generation's A Hard Day's Night".[30]Gateway NV55C Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The film presents itself as a reel of rejected commercial work by a fictional version of Don Hertzfeldt. The commissioned animated vignettes grow more and more abstract and inappropriate as the animator suffers a mental breakdown, until they literally fall apart. Toshiba Satellite P305-S8919 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Although the film is of course fictional and Hertzfeldt has never done commercial work, he did receive many offers to do television commercials after Billy's Balloon garnered international attention and acclaim. Hertzfeldt is an artist with anti-corporate leanings and in appearances has often told the humorous story of how he was tempted to produce the worst possible cartoons he could come up with for the companies, make off with their money, and see if they would actually make it to air. Eventually this became the germ for Rejected's theme of a collection of cartoons so bad they were rejected by advertising agencies, leading to their creator's breakdown. HP Pavilion dv6-3205tu Laptop CPU Cooling Fan In 2003, Hertzfeldt created The Animation Show with Beavis and Butt-head creator Mike Judge. It was a biennial North American touring festival that brought independent animated short films to more movie theaters than any distributor in history. The programs were personally curated by Hertzfeldt and Judge. A secondAnimation Show edition toured throughout 2005, featuring Hertzfeldt's short film The Meaning of Life and new films by animators like Peter Cornwell and Georges Schwizgebel. The third season of The Animation Show began its nationwide release in January 2007, featuring new work by animators Joanna Quinn and Bill Plympton, as well as Hertzfeldt's own Everything Will Be OK. HP Pavilion dv5-1040ec Laptop CPU Cooling Fan A stated goal of The Animation Show was to regularly "free the work of these independent artists from the dungeons of Internet exhibition", and bring them into proper movie theaters where most of the short films were meant to be seen. The Animation Show has meanwhile launched a supplemental DVD series of animated short films, with content that often varies from the annual theatrical programs. These DVDs are distributed by MTV. SONY Vaio VGN-NW21EF Laptop CPU Cooling Fan In a March 2008 entry in his blog, Hertzfeldt announced he had decided to leave The Animation Show, after having programmed (and contributing films to) three tours. A fourth season of the program was released in theaters in summer 2008, with no involvement from him.[31]Packard Bell NEW90 Laptop Keyboard Almost four years in the making, Hertzfeldt's twelve minute The Meaning of Life premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and toured film and animation festivals in 2005-06. Though its abstract nature puzzled some critics, it received almost universally positive reviews. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution called the film "the closest thing on film yet to Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey."[32] Packard Bell PEW91 Laptop Keyboard In the film, the evolution of the human race is traced from prehistory (mankind as blob forms),

through today (mankind as teeming crowds of selfish, fighting, or lost individuals), to hundreds of millions of years into the future as our species evolves into countless new forms; all of them still behaving the same way. The film concludes in the extreme future, with two creatures (apparently an adult and child subspecies of future human), having a conversation about the meaning of life on a colorful shore. Compaq Presario CQ56-102SA Laptop Keyboard In 2009, Hertzfeldt noted, "I don't often make the same sort of movie twice in a row. It's always been whatever's next in my head. From a commercial standpoint I guess I’ve made some pretty inscrutable decisions, like following up 'Rejected' with a sprawling abstract film about human evolution, but it's really just been whichever ideas won't go away at the time. There's always a lot of new things I’d like to try..."[33] DELL Inspiron MINI 1010 Laptop Keyboard Everything Will Be OK was released in 2006 and became Hertzfeldt's most critically successful piece to date, receiving his strongest reviews. The 17-minute animated short was based on his character "Bill" from his webcomic "Temporary Anesthetics".[34] The Boston Globe called the film a "masterpiece" with the Boston Phoenix declaring Hertzfeldt a "genius."[35] The short film was a cover story on the Chicago Reader, receiving four stars from critic J.R. Jones. Variety film critic Robert Koehler named Everything Will Be OK one of the "Best Films of 2007." [36]SONY VGN-FE11M Laptop Keyboard Everything will be OK is the first chapter of a three-part story about Bill, a young man whose daily routines, perceptions, and dreams are illustrated onscreen through multiple split-screen windows. Bill's seemingly mundane life, narrated in humorous and dramatic anecdotes, gradually grows dark as we learn he may be suffering from a possibly fatal mental disorder. Toshiba Satellite X205-SLi4 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Scenes throughout the trilogy are often divided into multiple windows of action on the screen at once, against a background of pure black. Animated still photographs are also incorporated inside certain windows, as well as a handful of the colorful special effects and experimental film techniques that Hertzfeldt first utilized in The Meaning of Life. Like many of Hertzfeldt's films, most of the trilogy's special effects were captured in-camera. Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8900 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Everything Will Be OK won the Grand Jury Prize for Short Filmmaking at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, the Lawrence Kasdan Award for Best Narrative Film at theAnn Arbor Film Festival, the Grand Prize at the London Animation Festival, and 34 other awards. SONY VAIO PCG-6N1L Laptop CPU Cooling Fan I Am So Proud of You, the second chapter in the story, was released in autumn 2008. Upon its release, Hertzfeldt traveled with I Am So Proud of You and a selection of his other films to 22 cities on a sold-out American tour (with two stops in the UK and three in Canada). I Am So Proud of You also played at film festivals throughout 2009 and has to date won 27 awards.[37]HP Pavilion dv6-3267cl Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The third and final chapter, It's Such a Beautiful Day, premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Hertzfeldt traveled with It's Such a Beautiful Day in 2011 and 2012 on another North American theatrical tour of his work. Of the trilogy, Steven Pate of "The Chicagoist" wrote, "There is a moment in each installment of Don Hertzfeldt's masterful trilogy of animated shorts where you feel something in your chest. It's an unmistakably cardiac event, the kind that great art can elicit when something profound and undeniably true is conveyed about the human condition. That's when you say to yourself: are stick figures supposed to make me feel this way? In the hands of a master, yes. And Hertzfeldt is to stick figures what Franz Liszt was to planks of ebony and ivory and what Ted Williams was to a stick of white ash: someone so transcendentally expert that to describe what they do in literal terms is borderline demeaning." [38]FUJITSU Lifebook T5010 Series Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Hertzfeldt self-produces and self-distributes his own DVDs. With these sales, fans of his work are literally financing his next films, with no middle men in between.[35] Bitter Films' first DVD release was a 2001 limited edition DVD "single" of the short Rejected. The DVD included a deleted scene, audio commentary, and a few hidden pages. It is now out of print. HP 580718-001 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan Don Hertzfeldt Volume One: 1995-2005 was released in 2006, collecting the first 10 years of his work. All of the short films were remastered and restored in high definition from their original film negatives. The DVD was made available only to fans via the Bitter Films website, with the first 750 pre-orderers receiving an "exclusive mystery gift" (either a 35mm clipping from Rejected that was autographed by Don, or a unique drawing by Don on a post-it note). ASUS G51J Laptop CPU Cooling Fan This DVD marked the first time his student films such as Genre and Lily and Jim were made widely available to the public - many of these works were only previously found on limited-release VHS collections of animated shorts, long out of print. Toshiba Portege R705 Laptop CPU Cooling Fan The special features for Don Hertzfeldt Volume One: 1995-2005 included a time-lapse documentary of the making of The Meaning of Life called "Watching Grass Grow," The Animation Show Trilogy cartoons, Lily and Jim deleted dialogues and outtakes,Rejected trivia captions, The Meaning of Life special effects audio commentary, a 140+ page "archive" section (of rare footage from Hertzfeldt's earliest cartoons, original pencil tests, deleted sequences, abandoned footage, and sketch to scene comparisons), Lily and Jim audio commentary, Rejected audio commentary, and a retrospective booklet, with liner notes by HertzfeldtHP G42-415DX Laptop Keyboard In 2007, Everything Will Be OK was released as another DVD "single". Special features on this release included over a hundred pages of "archival" material (sketches, storyboards, deleted materials), and a hidden feature that played a narration-free version of the film. I Am So Proud of You was released as a similar "single" in 2009. It featured a similar 148 page "archive" of production materials, as well as the hidden narration-free feature. TOSHIBA Satellite C650-182 Laptop Keyboard Don Hertzfeldt Volume 2: 2006-2011, a new DVD collection of all work from 2006-2011, has been announced for release in November 2012. Special features for the release will include over 40 minutes of live Q&A material from the touring program, the cartoon "Wisdom Teeth," a deleted scene from "It's Such a Beautiful Day," and a 24 page booklet. Advance pre-order customers for the release also received a 35mm film strip clipped from a release print of "It's Such a Beautfiul Day," and other free gifts. IBM Lenovo ThinkPad X300 Laptop Keyboard Hertzfeldt has been offered numerous lucrative commercial deals, including ad campaigns for Cingular Wireless and United Airlines, which he has declined. He has made various comments over the years about his distaste for corporate America and promises his fans he will never be involved with the commercial world.[6] He has said, "The goal isn’t to try and make as much money as I possibly can, the goal is to try and make good movies." HP G62-372US Laptop Keyboard In a March 2009 blog entry, Hertzfeldt compared filmmaking to his love of hiking and exploring new places: something he does just because he "enjoys doing it and will probably always enjoy doing it." He compared doing commercials to being paid to not go explore the woods, but to walk around someone's house eight hours a day wearing a sandwich board with a picture of a product on it. "Money's not the reason I take walks. It doesn't really factor into it. I take walks because I enjoy doing it. It's something I'd do if I was rich and it's something I'd do if I were poor." [44]TOSHIBA Satellite L755-S5364 Laptop Keyboard Nevertheless, several international ad campaigns have borrowed heavily from his unique style and bear enough resemblance to Hertzfeldt's work as to be mistaken for it. The most well-known instance of this is a series of 2004–2009 television ads for Kellogg's Pop-Tarts, which use black and white stick figures, "squiggly" animation, surreal humor, and even an occasional crumpling paper effect, DELL Latitude E6410 Laptop Keyboard all very similar to Hertzfeldt's style. Despite all these similarities, Hertzfeldt was not involved in any way.[45] In Canada, the not-for-profit corporation Encorp has used a Hertzfeldt-like style of short animation clips on TV and the Internet to promote its "Don't Mess With Karma" campaign to encourage recycling.[46] One of the latest ad campaigns to use an art style similar to Hertzfeldt's is Krystal fast food restaurant to promote their Blitz Energy Drink.[47]HP Pavilion DV7-2110tx Laptop Keyboard SAMSUNG NP-NC10-JP01 Laptop Keyboard SONY Vaio VGN-AW11M/H Laptop Keyboard
