A bit surprised there isn't a topic for this. I just got the DVD for Paul's collection of animated shorts for which he did the music, including Rupert and the Frog Song, Tropic Island Hum and Tuesday. Geoff Dunbar, who collaborated on Paul's children's book, High in the Clouds, directed them.

So far I've only gotten through Tropic Island Hum. It's very cute, lovely animation. Beautiful lighting and color and shading. Knowing that Paul did all the voices is a bit weird, though. He does a passable job of distinguishing his voices – after all, we know from his singing that he can do that. But it does feel like he's talking to himself after a while.

Wonderful World of Disney fans will appreciate Paul's intros, they're very Walt-like.

Haven't gotten through all of it yet, but I was wondering if anyone else has seen these? I've heard good things about Tuesday, so I'm looking forward to watching that one.

Did a bit of sleuthing and found this WogBlog post looking back at his animated projects, with YouTube links to films not included in this animation collection and a link to his Golden Globes appearance (with a very funny joke) . I wonder if the animated feature is still happening.

As it's related (as in has animation), I thought I'd post this link to a video I hadn't seen before today, for Once Upon A Long Ago:

I wonder if the animated feature is still happening.

And yes it is:

From Daily Variety: an animated film based on Paul's children's book High in the Clouds is set for a 2015 release.

Paul McCartney’s children’s book “High in the Clouds” is being developed as an animated movie with former New Line toppers Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye producing through their Unique Features banner with RGH Entertainment.

The film will be released in 3D in 2015. The book — which centers on a squirrel’s quest to find a fabled animal sanctuary called Animalia — is written by McCartney, Geoff Dunbar and Philip Ardagh.

McCartney will compose several original songs for the film. Tony Bancroft, whose credits include “Mulan,” will direct the feature from a screenplay by Josh Klausner (“Shrek Forever After”). Evolution will spearhead the global licensing and merchandising campaign for the film.

^^ Kind of goes along with the idea of Paul seemingly answering mainly questions from young people in that monthly question thing on his website.

Can buy Joe love! Here's the link that explains how. http://www.beatlesbible.com/forum/getting-better/forum-changes/page-9/#p110183

I suppose, though likewise, I find Paul to be on the patronizing side writing-wise. The one I like the most of his shorts is "Tuesday," which is more less juvenile in tone.

Nice – I saw the DVD on Amazon a while back and it looked kind of interesting, I'm holding back until the completist in me kicks in.
