A year ago I worked as matte painter on "The Gruffalo". The film has just entered the shortlist of 10 possible nominees for the Oscar 2011. I would be thrilled if we would make it to actual nominee!
"The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this morning the shortlist of ten animated shorts for the 2010 Best Animated Short category. Members of the Short Films and Feature Animation Branch will now vote one more time to narrow it down to five nominees. The final vote, which determines the winner, is open to all Academy members provided that they have watched every nominated short"

"The Gruffalo" will also be aired in the USA on ABC channel this Thursday, December 9 at 7/6c!

I think that deserves a repost of two of my matte paintings ;-)
