Is This A Blatant Rip-Off?

From Disney, no less

More than 3 years ago, I found a delightful video about serendipity that was full of hope and optimism and romance.

It was called SIGNS, and you can watch it and read my thoughts then HERE.

Then, I stumbled across this new animated video and learned it’s been nominated for an Oscar this year.

The creators of the new video claim they never knew of the old video.

That can’t be true, can it?

As much as I like the animation, how can plagarism be rewarded with an Academy Award?

Perhaps by giving an Oscar to each creator. Bring the original with you, and if your short film wins, share the spotlight with them as well.
