These days are just melting together. I get up ridiculously early in the morning and go to bed way past the wee hours all due to a melting pot of projects laying on my table. All of them are so much fun but I must admit that right now I am looking forward to getting some of them pushed off my plate so I can start focusing a little bit again.I will tell you all about it at a later point but right now there is no time to dwell. Must work.
Yesterday I got word that our Animation Tag Attack didn't get selected to Annecy which totally bummed me out. They received a very rough cut of the film and I can totally understand why it didnt get selected, but I would have loved to go, and I totally believe that it deserves exposure on the big festivals. But after spending a day in the studio with the composers for the last episode I am so psyched about the final product that Im sure everything will be alright.
Half an hour after my short term depression over the Annecy selection I received an email from the Vie Network informing me that Bear Untitled got selected by the Director's Guild of America for the very first New York digital short film festival:
"The Festival will be hosted at the prestigious Director's Guild of America Theater in New York City at a World Broadcast Gala Event in March 28th, 2011, with doors opening at 5:45pm. A selection of Chosen Digital Films that display excellence in the progression of the Digital Revolution in filmmaking will be shown for a World Audience LIVE on THEVIENETWORK.com."
Although slain in work I made a poster for my little film this morning. Nothing revolutionary, granted, but then again neither is the graphics of the little flick...
