This was made in 1984 when Big Brother wasn't watching

Anijam (1984, color, mono, 10m), Jury Prize winner of the 1984 Toronto International Animation Festival. It featured the work of 22 world famous animators. Each successive animator received the last frame of the previous animator's sequence. None of the animators had any idea of the action in the preceding sequences or the order of their sequence within the completed film. Each section of this "animation jam" revolves a semi-humanoid lead, Foska, who is placed into bizarre situations.
