Celestial Navigations has been getting some rave reviews as of late.  Here’s what the press have had to say about the DVD .

“Celestial Navigations is perhaps the most futuristic thirty five year old work your kid is going to see this year.”

“The Numero Group presents viewers with a carefully researched and compiled catalogue of Jarnow’s stunning body of work…the project has been thoroughly researched and careful attention has been paid to even the smallest detail from production and editing to packaging.  The finished product is creative and precise, perfectly suited to the traits and sensibilities of its subject and his work.”

“Al Jarnow‘s free-association films serve as an astringent antidote to the wisecracking-animal-and-dancing-inanimate-object school of animation practiced by Pixar, Disney, and the other Hollywood studios.”

“Introducing Al Jarnow, the mastermind behind the short films embedded into our collective memory. Celestial Navigations: The Short Films of Al Jarnow compiles a retrospective of Jarnow’s familiar animations from CTW along with his more obscure shorts. Jarnow experiments with geometric shapes, color, scale, and proportion in his films, creating everlasting works that communicate changes through time and space to both young and old.”
