431. Windy Day – John Hubley, Faith Hubley

Magpie%205

SUMMARY: An animated encapsulation of a conversation between Faith and John Hubley’s two daughters.

WHY IT’S HERE: John and Faith Hubley’s wonderful ‘Windy Day’, like their previous Oscar winner ‘Moonbird’, takes as its soundtrack the tape-recorded conversations of the Hubley’s children, this time their daughters, as they play in the garden. ‘Windy Day’ is the most successful of these style shorts the Hubley’s had yet made. The girl’s conversation is adorable and never threatens to become boring, the recording is clearer than in ‘Moonbird’ and the animation is even more attractive and inventive. It’s an absolutely disarming short that, if you’ll pardon the pun, blew me away.
