Annecy! (part one)


I am here at the 50th anniversary of the fantastic Annecy Animation Film Festival where, as of this morning, I began my duties as one of three jurors for student films. Do not let the title of the category fool you. These are not just kids with flipbooks.These are the animation geniuses of the near future and the task of choosing favorites is a daunting one. Luckily, I am sharing the burden with two animation geniuses of the present- Juan Pablo Zaramella, director of the multi-award winning film, A Journey to Mars and a certain Nick Park of Wallace and Gromit fame. Two of the nicest fellows you could possibly talk about cartoons with in a medieval town perched on the edge of a glacial lake.
