My friend Tomás, is a very talented cartoonist who lives in Spain. When he sent me a link earlier this year to a music video he'd done the visual for, I was impressed. Very original and imaginative. I told him to submit it to the Anchorage International Film Festival. He did. But it didn't get accepted. Perhaps they don't like music videos, but I don't think their rules say that. I still think it's very original, well drawn, and very evocative. (Whatever that means.) You can see a snippet of it yourself. And, of course, I'm looking forward to see all the animation at the festival that is better than this.
Note: I'm not complaining that it didn't get in. Just stating facts. Each person has his own aesthetic preferences and the people who decided on the animated films made choices that were right for them. And I haven't yet seen the others. Tomás wrote recently that the trailer can now be posted.
