CALL FOR ENTRIES: Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival 2012

The 2012 Montreal Stop Motion Film Festival's call for entries is now open!

I was able to make it to MSMFF 2010 and I have to say it was one of the most welcoming and fun animation festivals I've ever been to.  Erik Goulet set it up so that I was able to interview Patrick Boivin and Barry Purves while I was there (both of whom are two of my animation idols).

The quick video I put together for MSMFF 2010 below hardly does the festival justice, but it does give you a taste of what is in store.

The call for entries with links to the new MSMFF 2012 website are below the video.

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes now on YouTube

Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes isn't a Canadian production, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy Canadian animated content. When asked what Canadian animation they are most drawn to they responded by saying:

"We find inspiration in lots of animation art produced in Canada! Frédéric Back is just one of many animators that we love. His short film Crac is pure joy! It's hard to define what exactly makes it so charming - maybe it is lack of dialogues, or expressionistic drawing style with plenty of nice details, or maybe that it's fun to see the world through the eyes of a wheelchair!"
