The Obvious Child is going on tour with a bunch of other fantastic Sundance shorts.
Hollywood Reporter article:
It premieres at the Sundance Sunset Cinemas in L.A, 26th September, and then tours 2014/2015. Dates and cities and venues coming soon!
Full list of the films in the program:
The Obvious Child is now well into its festival run. Recently it was awarded the Silver Dragon for Best Animated Film at the 54th Krakow Film Festival...
Silver Dragon by Bronislaw Chromy
It also received the NTR Award for Best European Short Animation at Go Short.
The jury said:
"We loved the way this animated film takes the ingredients of dark children's' fairytales and storybooks and takes them to new perverted extremes. The maker shows great control over his medium by making unconventional but successful choices in voice-over and music to complete his stunning visual style."
Go Short Award and the film on the big screen
And at the Holland Animation Film Festival it got a Special Mention.
"The film has an imaginative, stunning and mysterious design for depicting a world full of cruelty and tenderness."
Not everyone likes it though. Here's a review from the Annecy Animation Festival:
"Stupid" and "incredibly stupid"
And at Sundance London not everyone enjoyed the film...

I was watching a dl'd copy of 'oh... rosalinda!!' recently and these old adverts popped up midway through...
it seems that it was taped back in 1998 when it was on Channel 4. someone pressed record on their vcr 15 years ago and now it's up on the internet for us all to enjoy - thanks whoever you are, this made me happy!
I also made a gif of a shot I like, it's up on my other blog here:
