Chris Ware Gets Animated For This American Life

This American Life

I’m a huge fan of Jonathan Goldstein’s WireTap series which airs on the CBC. Johnathan also writes and records for the NPR in the US, on a program called This American Life, hosted by Ira Glass. Recently, and yes, this is going somewhere, Ira brought his quirky true stories to television, with the help of Showtime. In episode 5 of season 1, there is a short piece called Cameraman which features the animated illustrations of cartoonist and graphic novelist Chris Ware.

Cameraman

A disturbing, animated short from acclaimed cartoonist Chris Ware about the perils of watching life from a distance. Also, a documentary that started as a lark and became an exercise in learning that getting behind a camera can change not just what you see, but also who you are. Debuts April 12, 2007
