Kristina Reed

Kristina Reed

Kristina Reed, the pro­ducer of the Acad­emy Award Win­ning ani­mated short Paper­man was escorted from her seat at the awards show shortly after her film won the cov­eted stat­uette. It seems that in her exu­ber­ant mood to cel­e­brate the win, Ms. Reed took to mak­ing paper air­planes, apply­ing a lip-stick kiss, and send­ing the planes into the audi­ence around her.

Disney Grabs The Oscars

Brave

It was a big night for Dis­ney ani­ma­tion at the Oscars tonight with Dis­ney short Paper­man tak­ing home Best Ani­mated Short, and Disney/PIXAR’s Brave grab­bing the stat­uette for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture. Paper­man had pre­vi­ously won the Annie for Best Short, while Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph had won the Annie for Best Fea­ture Film… so not so much on the Annies pre­dict­ing the Oscars anymore.

The Jockstrap Raiders Invade The Internets!

The Jockstrap Raiders

The Jock­strap Raiders

The full video of the Stu­dent Acad­emy Award win­ning Ani­ma­tion “The Jock­strap Raiders” is now avail­able to view online. Five years in the mak­ing, this was a labor of love for direc­tor Mark Nel­son. The film became his Mas­ters the­sis project at UCLA.

The Jock­strap Raiders is a Stu­dent Acad­emy Award win­ning ani­mated short film about a group of mis­fits dur­ing world war I. It takes place in Leeds, Eng­land where our heroes are all excluded from the war due to var­i­ous abnor­mal­i­ties. Threat­ened by the invad­ing Ger­man Kaiser and his army, they must learn to become a team and over­come their defi­cien­cies in order to save Britain, and the world.

Com­pleted at UCLA, it is Mark Nelson’s MFA the­sis project. The short has won many awards, includ­ing: Stu­dent Acad­emy Award; Best Ani­ma­tion, British Ani­ma­tion Fes­ti­val; Best Ani­ma­tion Macon Film Fes­ti­val; Best Nar­ra­tive Short GI Film Fes­ti­val; Audi­ence Award Orlando Film Festival.

Tonight, film critic Leonard Maltin and voice actors Pinky and the Brain, urm, Uh, I mean Rob Paulsen and Mau­rice LaMarche are hand­ing out the Annies at UCLA’s Royce Hall. For 40 years this annual event rec­og­nizes the best in ani­ma­tion from around the world.

Through most of the night, things look pretty well split up between the big stu­dios, with one award going to Dream­Works, the next to Pixar, then to Para­Nor­man, and then to Dis­ney. But when the big awards came down, it was all Dis­ney, with Wreck-It Ralph pulling in Best Music, Voice Act­ing, Direct­ing and Best Fea­ture. Dis­ney short Paper­man won for best ani­mated short.

Vancouver Shows Oscar-nominated Animated Shorts

Oscar Statuette, Academy Awards

Oscar Stat­uette, Acad­emy Awards

Vancouver’s Vancity The­atre is bring­ing back its pop­u­lar pro­gram of Acad­emy Award-nominated short films in the cat­e­gories of Best Ani­mated Short and Best Live Action Short from Fri­day, Feb­ru­ary 8 to Thurs­day, Feb­ru­ary 21.

Here are the Oscar-nominated ani­mated shorts to be shown in an 88-minute program:

Mag­gie Simp­son in The Longest Day­care (David Sil­ver­man, U.S.A., 5 min.)
Mag­gie Simp­son spends a day at the Ayn Rand Day­care Cen­ter, where she is diag­nosed at an aver­age intel­li­gence level. Long­ing to be grouped with the gifted chil­dren, Mag­gie finds her des­tiny by res­cu­ing a lonely cocoon from Baby Ger­ald, who is busy smoosh­ing butterflies.

Adam and Dog (Minkyu Lee, U.S.A., 16 min.)
The story about the dog of Eden. What hap­pened in those first days of Cre­ation that made Man and Dog so insep­a­ra­ble? The dog, as he lives through this curi­ous world, encoun­ters a strange crea­ture; a human being named Adam — and with that dis­cov­ers a new-found con­nec­tion to the world.

Fresh Gua­camole (Adam Pesapane aka PES, U.S.A., 2 min.)
Learn how to trans­form famil­iar objects into Fresh Guacamole!

Head Over Heels (Tim­o­thy Reckart, United King­dom, 10 min.)
After many years of mar­riage, Wal­ter and Madge have grown apart: he lives on the floor and she lives on the ceil­ing. They live sep­a­rate, par­al­lel lives, never talk­ing, barely even look­ing at each other. When Wal­ter tries to reignite their old romance, it brings their equi­lib­rium crash­ing down, and the cou­ple that can’t agree which way is up must find a way to put their mar­riage back together.

Paper­man (John Kahrs, U.S.A., 7 min.)
Paper­man tells the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose des­tiny takes an unex­pected turn after a chance meet­ing with a beau­ti­ful woman on his morn­ing com­mute. Con­vinced that the girl of his dreams is gone for­ever, he gets a sec­ond chance when he spots her in a sky­scraper win­dow across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imag­i­na­tion and a stack of papers to get her atten­tion, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him.

And for your view­ing plea­sure… three short­listed con­tenders that did not make the final cut:

Abio­gen­e­sis (Richard Mars, New Zealand, 5 min.)
In this breath­tak­ing sci­ence fic­tion spec­ta­cle, a strange mechan­i­cal device lands on a des­o­late world and uses the planet to undergo a star­tling trans­for­ma­tion that has pro­found impli­ca­tions for an entire galaxy.

Dripped (Leo Ver­ier, France, 9 min.)
Jack is a strange char­ac­ter. He steals paint­ings from muse­ums to eat them. He feeds him­self with the artis­tic process of the painter. But one day, the muse­ums are closed, and he will have to paint by him­self to survive.

The Gruffalo’s Child (Uwe Hei­d­schöt­ter and Johannes Wei­land, United King­dom, 27 min.)
A lit­tle Gruffalo ignores her father’s warn­ings and tip­toes out into the snow in search of the Big Bad Mouse.

Maltin, Paulsen and Lamarche to Host Annie Animation Awards

Annie Awards Statue

Annie Awards Statue

Why have just one when you can have four!

For­mer Annie Awards host and movie reviewer Leonard Maltin and voice actors Rob Paulsen and Mau­rice Lamarche will share host­ing duties, along with a spe­cial appear­ance by long time Annies presenter-favorite, actor and ani­ma­tion indus­try pro­fes­sional Seth Green, at this year’s 40th Annual Annie Awards, set for Sat­ur­day, Feb­ru­ary 2.

Cel­e­brat­ing the best in ani­ma­tion, this annual black-tie evening will begin with a pre-reception at 5 p.m., fol­lowed by the Annie Awards cer­e­mony at 7 p.m. and an after-party cel­e­bra­tion imme­di­ately fol­low­ing the cer­e­mony. All events will be held at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

We are very excited to have our hosts share in the 40th cel­e­bra­tion of the Annies and know they will bring great energy and excite­ment to this year’s cer­e­mony,” says ASIFA-Hollywood pres­i­dent Frank Glad­stone. Joined on stage by a lively mix of ani­ma­tion lumi­nar­ies, celebrity pre­sen­ters and comedic tal­ent — includ­ing ani­ma­tion leg­end June Foray — are Jes­sica Wal­ter, James Patrick Stu­art, Kris­ten Schaal, Mae Whit­man, Sean Astin, Greg Cipes, Jason Biggs, Jes­sica DiCi­cco, Lucas Grabeel, Dar­ren Criss and Joey Richter, Kevin Shinick, Jim Cum­mings and Diedrich Bader, Atti­cus Shaf­fer and Tucker Albrizzi, Jamie Bolio, Kevin Michael Richard­son and Loretta Devine, Alan Tudyk, Mo Collins, Max Charles, Jon Olsen and Fred
Tatash­iore, Sam Wit­mer and Matt Lanter, and Tony Anselmo.

This year’s Win­sor McCay recip­i­ents are Terry Gilliam, Oscar Grillo and Mark Henn. The Win­sor McCay Award stands as one of the high­est hon­ors given to an indi­vid­ual in the ani­ma­tion indus­try in recog­ni­tion for career con­tri­bu­tions to the art of ani­ma­tion. The June Foray award will be pre­sented to Howard Green, and the Ub Iwerks Award will be pre­sented to Toon Boom Animation.

Often a pre­dic­tor of the annual Acad­emy Award for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture, the Annie Awards honor over­all excel­lence as well as indi­vid­ual achieve­ment in a total of 30 cat­e­gories rang­ing from best fea­ture, pro­duc­tion design, char­ac­ter ani­ma­tion and effects ani­ma­tion to sto­ry­board­ing, writ­ing, music, edit­ing and voice act­ing. Entries sub­mit­ted for con­sid­er­a­tion were from pro­duc­tions that orig­i­nally aired, were exhib­ited in an ani­ma­tion fes­ti­val or com­mer­cially released between Jan­u­ary 1 and Decem­ber 31, 2012.

ASIFA-Hollywood is the world’s first and fore­most pro­fes­sional orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to pro­mot­ing the art of Ani­ma­tion and cel­e­brat­ing the peo­ple who cre­ate it. Today, ASIFA-Hollywood, the largest chap­ter of the inter­na­tional orga­ni­za­tion ASIFA, sup­ports a range of ani­ma­tion activ­i­ties and preser­va­tion efforts through its mem­ber­ship. Cur­rent ini­tia­tives include the Ani­ma­tion Archive, ani­ma­tion film preser­va­tion, spe­cial events, classes and screenings.

Cre­ated in 1972 by vet­eran voice tal­ent Foray, the Annie Awards have grown in scope and stature for the past three decades.

Brave wins Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature

Golden Globe

Golden Globe

The highest-grossing ani­mated film of 2012 won the Golden Globe Award for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film on Sun­day night.

Brave, co-produced by Pixar Ani­ma­tion Stu­dios and Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures, made $237.2 mil­lion in North Amer­ica alone to have the seventh-highest gross of any movie — ani­mated or oth­er­wise — released last year.

It won out in the cat­e­gory over fel­low Dis­ney releases Franken­wee­nie (Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures) and Wreck-It Ralph (Walt Dis­ney Pictures/Walt Dis­ney Ani­ma­tion Stu­dios; Walt Dis­ney Pic­tures), as well as nom­i­nees Hotel Tran­syl­va­nia (Colum­bia Pictures/Sony Pic­tures Ani­ma­tion and Rise of the Guardians (Dream­Works Ani­ma­tion LLC).

Brave direc­tor Mark Andrews received the Golden Globe from come­dian Sacha Baron Cohen, who feigned drunk­en­ness onstage.

Holy cow! Being brave is about being true to your­self and allow­ing your loved ones the same free­dom,” said Andrews.

The Golden Globes are pre­sented by the Hol­ly­wood For­eign Press Asso­ci­a­tion. Sunday’s awards cer­e­mony aired live on NBC.
