AniMazSpot Q3 2010 Winners

Postby Charles » Thu Jun 24, 2010 4:31 pm


AniMazing Spotlight is happy to announce two Third Quarter winners, which will vie with the other quarterly winners for Best of Festival at upcoming 2010 Second Annual Animated Shorts festival.

“A Complex Villainelle”, is a joint project by a number of students, including Bart Ovaitt, Rebecca Forth, Nathan Billington and Ryan Porter, at the University of Colorado, Denver’s
Digital Animation Center. It’s a fictitious story about some fictitious characters, the Penguin, Batman, and Mary Poppins, extremely clever, funny, and very well done in 3D computer animation.


“Kidnap” is a totally different sort of animated short by Sijia Luo, from Chengho, China. Sijia studied first at the Beijing Film Academy and then went to UCLA’s Animation Workshop. As many of the panelists commented, this delightful little short uses a magnificent color palette, and although it’s in computer animation, has a look of hand-drawn.
