Greetings from Zinebi in Bilbao

So many things has happened since the last entry: a TON of festivals and screenings (see sidebar) and some more exciting creative things in the pipeline.

Scott Benson started a new collaboration called Late Night Work Club, with some stellar indie animators from around the world. It is the cool baby brother of the ATA and definitely worth paying attention to. So go to the website, sign up for it and wait in excitement... It looks amazing!


On a side note; this came in the mail with greetings from Zinebi film festival in Bilbao...

ANIS talentprisen 2012

We just returned from an amazing week at Odense International Film Festival. Not only was it a week with beautiful people and good friends, but to top it off with an award ceremony that honored animation as a medium and not a genre, awarding Hund i Himlen (Nørlum and Basmati Film) the National Grand Prix and showering the animation industry in general with awards and special mentionings.

We took home "ANIS talentprisen 2012" (The Danish Animation Guilds Talent Award 2012) for "an extraordinairy film within the animation genre" - I am SO honored to have received this award alongside the team of the ATA (the m.fl on the plaque means among others) it has been a power presentation from everyone involved.

It was the top of the cherry to get it handed over by Flemming Quist Møller, one of the animation directors that created my childhood alongside Gunnar Wille (another childhood hero) and Paw Charlie Ravn, who is one of the most talented young Turks in the Danish animation industry today.

A very nice person from the audience was so kind to send me my acceptance speech, where I am very happy and ranting a lot. I forgot to thank a bunch of people, not least Ewen Stenhouse, Maxwell A Oginni & Kaiserbrand who all did episodes and are really good friends, Shaun Farley (and ANIS, ouch). But I hope you all know it wasn't personal, my brain just malfunctioned. Hopefully you can tell by the clip that Im really happy...

Annecy 2012, World Premiere!

Last night I had a dream that I was in Annecy and I was partying REALLY hard. And at some point I stole a Porsche and took it out into the mountains to drive some badass off road. And the next day it dawned on me: FUCK I missed the ATA world premiere!!!
If you dont want that to happen to you, you should come rock the cinemas with us at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2012. Itll be our world premiere. Finished in HD on DCP with a glorious 5.1 soundtrack mixed and made by the amazing Shaun Farley... It looks AWESOME on the big screen...

Here are the Screenings:
- Petite salle, 05/06/2012, 23H00 
- Salle Pierre Lamy, 07/06/2012, 16H00
- Decavision 2, 08/06/2012, 18H00

And earlier this morning I just received word from Odense International Film Festival that we are selected for this years competition. It'll be in Odense, Denmark from 20. – 25. of August 2012.

To make all this Easier Ill make a tab on the side where Ill put down the screenings. Hopefully there'll be more than these two. I've spend the past couple of weeks filling out forms for the most prestigious of festivals.
Keep your fingers crossed.

First Batch of festival Submissions ready to ship...
