The American Life TV show

This is a lovely piece of animation by Chris Ware for ‘The American Life’ TV show:

“This cartoon is about schoolkids who started making fake video cameras out of card board boxes and toilet paper tubes to “film” incidents around the schoolyard. Because they had these phony cameras to hide behind, they distanced themselves from each other, losing their concern for the wellbeing of their fellow students. The school administration responded by banning the cameras. It’s a perfect story for Ware to animate.” – [Thanks to Boing Boing]
