Apocalypse Pooh (1987)
Todd Graham’s notorious, unauthorized VHS-era mashup combines footage from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day with audio from Apocalypse Now, to surprisingly plausible results.

The Picture Book. Girl reading book in window seat. Honor C Appleton (English, 1879-1951).
Appleton illustrated over 150 children’s books using watercolour and pen and ink drawings. She would spend many hours watching children at play, and her innocent and natural illustrations were generally from a floor level viewpoint and so were appealing to children who have the same perspective.
"Personally, I think that television means solitude while cinema means community. In the cinema, the tension is between the screen and the whole audience and not only between the screen and you. It makes an enormous difference. That is why it’s not true that the cinema is a mechanical toy.
"It’s a well-known theory that film has twenty-four frames to the second, and that a film is always the same; but that’s not true. Even though the reel might be exactly the same, the film’s entirely different when it’s shown in a huge cinema, to an audience of a thousand, where a certain tension and atmosphere are created in perfect conditions, on a perfect screen, and with perfect sound. It’s a completely different film when shown in a small, smelly cinema in the suburbs, to an audience of four, one of whom might be snoring. It’s a different film. It’s not that you experience it differently. It is different. In this sense, films are hand-made; even though a film can be repeated because the reels are the same, each screening is unrepeatable.”
