I have to make a confession:
My animation called "The Impostor", which won the April 2005 IRTC 
animation contest, was not original. I've found it on some old betamax 
tape and given the video quality it's probably much older (16mm film I 
guess.)

All I did was removing the scratches and colorizing it frame by frame 
with The Gimp, lip-syncing a soundtrack to the video and uploading it to 
the IRTC webpage.

Well, I can't live with that lie any longer, so here's a link to the 
original version of "The Impostor":

or

My apologies, I'm very sorry!

If indeed someone's trying to obtain an I.R.T.C. award by fraud, it looks like
they've succeeded.  You should be ashamed of yourself, trying to pass off your
own work as someone trying to pass of someone else's work as... Wait, what?

Very nice work, Sascha - I have to admit, you had me going there for a 
minute. ;-)

Oh yeah.  In my rage, I forgot to note what an excellent animation it is.  Of
course I thought you were serious, too.

This is outrageous and you're clearly doing it again! You've even retitled 
this 'original' as if it's you're own work, when it is recognisably a 
retouch of Walt Harvards 1943 short film for which he was largely 
discredited, accused of stealing Albert Finklestein's ideas and preliminary 
sketches from 1941, which themselves turned out to be a plagiarism of a 
cartouche found in the tomb of Archenarchenarchenen. When will this deceipt 
end?

The only saving grace is your excellent colorization work, enabling this 
classic to be appreciated by a whole new generation.

  Now you'll have to redeem yourself by making another, brand new animation
with POV-Ray.
