Today, I took the day off from school! In the morning, I went to a kids meeting with Ben Joseph. The program was called Animation Celebration! It was really fun!!! I got so many good tips to write a fun script. Go to this link to find out more! https://www.animationfestival.ca/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=226&Itemid=939#Animation%20Celebration
(P.S: Did you know, Ben has written, many TV shows also known for How to Be Indie, Gravity Falls, Rolie Polie Olie, George Shrinks, Oh no! It's a Alien Invasion!, and much much more? Also he won an Emmy Award!)
These next photos shows Ben giving his presentation!
Oh, any who! After that, there was a little reception where you could learn about different types of animation and you were able play with them.
After that, my mom and I went to Adam Elliot short films.(https://www.animationfestival.ca/index.php?option=com_oiaf&task=showevent&i=986#986)
We were a little bit late for it, but we saw one of his most famous short films called "Harvie Krumpet" which won a Oscar for the best animated short film.
After that, I went to short films meant for kids competition. It was really good! To find out more about the short films go to this link! https://www.animationfestival.ca/index.php?option=com_oiaf&task=showevent&i=979#979
In the night, I went to something really special... I went to Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2! Yes, I know. You are confused. You are thinking right now that Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is coming this Friday. Yes, you are right about that. But, Sony pictures animation decided to show the movie for fun in the festival! I'll write a review about it soon!
