MOXIE WINS GRAND PRIZE AT OTTAWA

Photobucket

Moxie won the GRAND PRIZE for Best Independent Short Animation at The Ottawa International Animation Festival on Sunday.

This was the Bear's first outing and it's a great way to kick start the festival run. It's encouraging when a festival like Ottawa selects your work (which they've done for the past few years), and even more so when it wins an award like this.

I was also pleased to see Phil Mulloy win the Grand Prize for Best Feature. He's a fellow Animate filmmaker and his work has had a big influence on me.

Here's some coverage on the festival and awards....
