Ladies & Gentlemen! I am very pleased to make the announcement that my animated short – The Trip – is an official selection of the Animation Torrent Festival in Park Ridge, Ill and will have it’s world premiere there next month! Yippie! So excited!! On the jury this year is super legend animator – Bill Plympton!!. He made one of my fave ever animations – Your Face – if you haven’t seen it, check it out! It’s mind blowing! Or face blowing! OMG! Bill Plympton is going to watch my little film! Wow!
The festival is held in the most gorgeous Art Deco gem that is the Pickwick Theatre in the Chicago suburb of Park Ridge. OMG! What am I going to wear??? Totally pinching myself!
They don’t make em like that anymore! So glad to see a theatrical monument like this preserved in all it’s glory and not turned into a bingo hall! They even have a guy playing an organ on a rising platform! Wow! Can’t think of a better place to debut my work! I made a little trailer to give you a sneak peak. Stay tuned for Chicago Shenanigans coming soon! oxo gd
