Attending Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival

The competition was called –short to long– and we had a script for our next short film, and a 1 pager for our feature idea…so why not submit!?
Luckily, we were one of 16 treatments that were chosen out of 180.
So, I am going to Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival to see if there’s any possibility of finding a producer /production company. Wish me luck :)

If you’re attending, see you there!

RISD visit

Last week, we visited Rhode Island School of Design’s Film/Video/Animation department. Met with some seniors who are making interesting films, which were very inspiring. Later on, we gave a presentation to the animation seniors.

As shown in the Pickle Jar comic below, I did get stopped at the airport for carrying some clay, but it was quite an inspiring visit.
Amy Kravitz & Steven Subotnick are like our animation parents. They bring us to the starting point and enlighten us with wisdoms.

I gave a camera to Max, asking him to document our visit at RISD.
These are the pictures he took… which I am not quite sure what I’m supposed to do with them!?

MOVE ON…! 100 Years of Animation Art

We’re part of a group exhibition in Amersfoort, Netherlands called MOVE On…! 100 Years of Animation Art.

This weekend is the opening, so if you’re in the Netherlands area, stop by and enjoy the exhibition.

Our film, “Between Times” along with some puppets, miniature baked goods, storyboards and props will be exhibited with other films made at the Netherlands Institute for Animation Film (The residency program we were part of from 2011~2012)
This will be part of The Making of…

THE MAKING OF…
A display of sketches, storyboards and other production materials in the education area will help visitors understand the process of creation from initial concept to final product. All the materials relate to the latest films developed or produced wholly or partly in the studios of the former Netherlands Institute for Animation Film.
