'Paul & the Dragon' wins Divercine!

Last week Paul & the Dragon won the price for 'Best Animated Film' in Montevideo, Uruguay, at the the 18th International Uruguayan Film Festival for Children and Teen-agers, DIVERCINE. The film also got a Special Mention on the festival. Excellent!
This is what the jury had to say about it:
"Por el excelente guión que, sin diálogos, logra transmitir lúdicamente la visión y las emociones de un niño ante el diagnóstico de cáncer en su cuerpo. Logra encontrar humor donde habitualmente sólo hay drama y logra encontrar vida donde se cree que solo hay muerte"
Roughly translated by Google:
"Its excellent script, without any dialogue, manages to convey the vision and playful emotions of a child before the diagnosis of cancer in his body. It finds humor where there is usually only tragedy and finds life where it is believed that there is only death"

Interview Digital Movie Magazine

'Floyd'...falling soon!

This week we got the most excellent news that the National Film Fund has granted us financial support for the pre-production of our new animated shortfilm
'Fallin' Floyd'.
This means after wrapping up 'Little Quentin' this summer, we can start the pre-production of two new film projects: a short and a feature film. Excellent.
