Oscars weekend

I'm just back from a very quick but intense trip to LA. Alf and I went there to support our Kells pals at the Oscars and we had a fantastic time with them.
The party at the huge irish pub in Hollywood was crazy, we had SO much fun even if we were still jetlagged! We followed the Awards ceremony from there and it was quite exciting to see on the screen this scene Alf and I had the honor to animate to represent the movie.
The characters from this year's Best Animated Feature category had to say what being nominated meant to them, so this was our take on it.
We animated Aisling on good old Flash. Brush tool, frame by frame.
Thanks Cartoon Saloon for this awesome opportunity.



Many thanks to Aaron at Cold Hard Flash for the lovely post! LINK

Vorrei tantissimo che si decidessero a distribuirlo anche qui in italia. L'ho cercato inutilmente nelle programmazioni delle sale dopo aver saputo che era nominato agli oscar.

Complimenti per il vostro lavoro!! Spero di poterlo vedere presto!
