Vintage computer animation

I recently ran across a great collection of early computer animation efforts, namely the VintageCG channel on YouTube. It includes most of the pioneering short films noted in The Pixar Touch, including Stanley & Stella in Breaking the Ice (1987), Nancy Lasseter’s Pencil Test (1988), and Loren Carpenter’s Vol Libre (1980)

Whoever curates this virtual museum—I couldn’t tell who it is—should add Tony de Peltrie (1985), a pathbreaking piece of character animation. It would also be nice to have Ed Catmull’s hand animation and Fred Parke’s face animation from Futureworld (1976), the first use of 3D computer animation in a feature film.
