There’s a really great little event that happens every year out in Miramichi, New Brunswick. It’s the Jalloo Festival of Animation and Games. I love going. I try to go every year. I’m still trying to make it for this year’s show, where they let me talk and talk and talk.
Usually we arrange a little screening of what I’m able to put together from the latest batch of animated films making the rounds. We’ve had stuff from Nick Cross, Jess Borutski, Kevin Parry, and lots of others. This year, Jalloo is opening up the screening as a competition, with modest cash prizes. The details are at the link.
I want to invite everyone out there with a film sitting on their hard drive to send it in. I get to be one of the judges this year, so please, entertain me! Be part of the inaugural Jalloo competitive animation screening!
Here’s some info:
