Oh, the early early days of DVD.

The Big Story (dirs. David Stoten and Tim Watts, 1994) is a five-minute claymation movie featuring the voice of Frank Gorshin (who played The Riddler on the Adam West Batman TV show) as Kirk Douglas in the three roles of cub reporter, editor, and veteran reporter (essentially the three stages of Kirk Douglas’s career) in a typical newsroom situation.

When DVDs were first mass-marketed there were a lot of direct-to-DVD content releases including many compilation series. Sort of a precursor to YouTube and streaming indie content, this was when a lot of things previously only viewable at festivals became available to home markets. One such ersatz magazine on DVD was a series called Short. This appeared in the very first issue, Short 1: Invention.
