NW Animation Festival


The NW Animation Festival is a new film fest being spearheaded by Portland animator Sven Bonnichsen. He has some fantastic ideas, including touring a "Best of the Fest" lineup throughout the year. If you are an animator, help him make this festival a success by submitting a film!! Personally, I'll be creating something new to submit, but you can send in any film any length from any point in your career as an animator. Read more at the website:



My plan is this: finish shooting the cemetery scene for Unearthed this week, strike the set, and begin production on a new short for the fest based on a Roman myth called "Pyramus & Thisbe", a bloody tale of forbidden love which will be presented by the Fates. I've been wanting to turn my Fates into puppets for awhile and have had a blast working on them over the last couple of days. Stay tuned for more...

this post gets stronger and stronger with each line - until the final image crawls into sight. Haunting, very dark and haunting. Respect !

Oh - and cool: a new Uba-Animation is rolling along. Good to know !
