September 11, 2001 - Ten years ago on the AN Forums

Ten years ago on this date, the world drastically changed forever. On that day, the AnimationNation Forums were abuzz with editorial activity, providing the animation community a place to collectively grieve, mourn, express itself, and share information. I thought it would be fitting, in memory of the attack on the US, to reflect back on that time by highlighting some of the many discussions that were taking place then. Follow this link to the current AN Forums to see a view of 9-11 from 250 miles in space, plus a list of links to the many topics that our members were involved in ten years ago concerning the fateful events of the mindless and premeditated tragedy that has affected the lives of just about everyone around the world in one form or another.

The last Tuesday of each month we sponsor an event here in Burbank called AnimationNation Night. It's a social - creative - educational gathering that attracts large groups of people. Most of the time we have guest speakers who are prominent in the industry, or we have screenings, or both.

This month we'll be hosting the great Stephen Silver, one of the outstanding character designers in animation. Steve is renowned not only for his work on some of the most popular cartoons on TV over the years. He's also at the forefront of artists who are independently successful in their own right. A creative individual with no equal in the business.

For more info on Stephen Silver head on over to his site. For info on this coming AN Night  please follow the link to the AN Forum. For info on AN Night in general, follow this link.

The more I see of student animated content the more amazed I am at just how incredible the level of creative brilliance is in our industry worldwide, and there's no shortage of it in France.

I don't know much about this particular animated short other than it has a funny twist to the ending. It originates from the Ecole Superieure Des Metiers Artistiques. Obviously a fine educational institution for the arts judging by this film entitled "Get Out". There's a website associated with it at getout-lefilm.com. Apparently it's won some prestigious awards at film festivals throughout Europe and the USA in 2009 and 2010. Here's the corresponding topic on the forums. Enjoy the film...

Time to celebrate some Hungarian animation. Adrian Foster, our webmaster who goes by the moniker of Skynet on the forums, posted this video recently of an animated short by István Orosz. A Hungarian born painter, designer and animator, his work is inspired by the surreal art of M.C. Escher who created masterpieces of optical illusion throughout the 20th Century. Take a look at  István Orosz's amazing "Mazes" from 2008 and marvel at the mind of this great talent. Here's the topic on the forums.
