Red Bucket...

In the wake of Wes Andersen and the pop embrace of the handmade cinematic innocence of the magical realms of childhood, comes Red Bucket Films. Don't know much about them, but I applaud their resourcefulness and confidence. Theirs is an aesthetic that despite its preciousness, is harder to dismiss than most, since it taps something so fundamental in all of us. That said, I'm already dead bored of the hand drawn fonts and crude animations that are used slavishly to imply integrity and warmth in shows like Juno and Flight of the Conchords. Red Bucket is a reminder that we can trust our eye when it comes to knowing what's real and what's cooked up in a lab.
