Holiday Card Face-Off: All Animation Was Not Created Equal
Written by Bwog Staff
Judith Shapiro’s holiday greeting, with its fancy Roger Rabbit-style animation over actual photographs, has seemingly one-upped Columbia’s card, which only shows people drawing lions. Are the lions not able to leap off the page and slowly fade into a photograph of Roree? And if they are, what’s the hold up?
In terms of music, accolades to Columbia for modeling itself in the vein of Vince Guaraldi’s Charlie Brown Christmas. Classy and understated—while still economically avoiding to pay Guaraldi royalties. In addition, Bwog awards Barnard’s card Points for Trying, because it must have taken a long time to record a chorus of “Morningside Heights is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful” without anyone laughing.
