Ottawa (Day Three)

Caught quite a bit yesterday and what's turning out to be a great festival.

The fairly strong showing included standouts like the hypnotic "A Country Doctor" by Koji Yamamura, The manic "Exit 2" by Satoshi Tomioka, and "I Met the Walrus" by Josh Raskin. Check out the full list here.

Marlon West from Walt Disney Animation Studios was in attendance yesterday to give a presentation on the Paperless system in "How to Hook Up Your Home Theater". Of note, the Disney studio chose to use Toon Boom Harmony with Wacom Cintiqs for the rough animation, cleanup, and color of their animation level and plan to use it for future productions (such as the Princess and the Frog). I noted too that there were still holdouts (Such as Andreas Deja) against using the paperless system, so they have also designed a traditional workflow that eventually ends up in harmony as well. Cool stuff.

I also caught the Saul Steinberg and Animation screening and the Animator's Picnic, both of which were exactly as expected. If you're a fan of Saul Steinberg, definitely check out the screening!

Sounds like fun. Cool art pics there by the way.

Thanks for these Festival updates. It gives those, like myself, a chance to see an insider view even as the Festival is under way. I am really looking forward to seeing the Yamamura film and am glad you mentioned it.
