SuperBattle to play in Phoenix!

Recently received word that SuperBattle Episode 1 will play in a block of animated shorts at the Phoenix Film Festival in April! I'm going to try and make it to this one- gotta' see Brawl Magnet on the big screen!

I was also notified that while SuperBattle didn't make it into the main selections, it will be included in the online portion of the First Glance Film festival. It will be in competition with about 30 other short films- the winner will get shown in the First Glance Hollywood festival. More details coming soon- I'll need as many people as I can get to sign up, watch and vote for SuperBattle!

Fellow stopmo superstars Trisha Gum and Dan Field released their music video for the band Papillon this past week. It was a great night at the downtown Standard Hotel here in L.A.- watching a stellar set from the band and then getting a sneak peak at the video. Trisha and Dan employed a mixed-media approach with puppets and cut-out paper shot on a down-shooter. Liz Harvatine was the Lead Animator and did a great job with both techniques.

Congratulations GumField!
