I first got this back in the late 90s, I think, on a CD-R. Some years later, it turned up on Youtube (I'm guessing around 10-15 years ago). So it's been out there for a while, but always worth pointing out to those who haven't seen it.

The second one's the better quality one.

I like how the fanfare at 13:40 is fitting (and much of the other music, for that matter). Making a movie like this is no smaller feat than winning something in a fairy tale.
