Don Hertzfeldt《退件》(中文字幕)

▲ Heather Bixler, "Rejected - Four Week Mini Bible Study", Becoming Press LLC, 2012

「在商業世界裡,或許這只是動畫師的創意停滯不前,亦或是有更深沉的個性抹殺隱含其中...在缺乏有意義的輸入與任何殘存的理由、連貫的敘事結構之下,這些被退件的動畫作品越來越不穩定、開始變得四分五裂。」
 
── Don Hertzfeldt 《Rejected》
 
  這次的翻譯習作是2000年奧斯卡最佳動畫短片入圍作品,Don Hertzfeldt的《退件》。說它是《ASDF Movies》與《快樂氰化物》無厘頭中帶諷刺風格的祖師爺應該不為過。
 
  注意:以下影片內容含有卡通化但毫無意義的血腥、暴力片段,請斟酌收看。

  演化是如何發生的呢?大自然的選擇機制,可以把個體中比較好的特性遺傳給下一代。
我們以往的認知是,這個選擇機制會把「最適合生存的特性」挑出來,但是那些一點也不助於生存、誇張的羽飾以及奇特的求偶舞蹈就竟是怎麼產生的呢?
 
  康乃爾大學的鳥類學實驗室製作了一個精彩的短片,帶我們一探背後的原因。這次的影片只有八分鐘,請按「繼續閱讀」跳轉看影片。
