Saturday at the OIAF!

Hello fellow readers,
This is day 4 out of 5 in the OIAF! Let's begin!
Today, I had Short Films for Kids Competion, Until Sbornia Do us Part, In Conversation with directors John Musker and Ron Clements, and the Awards Ceremony!

In the morning, I headed to the National Gallery of Art as a kids jury to see Short Films for kids completion! After that, we went to an meeting table and decided which short films to pick! My picks were at number 1 Anatole's little Sauce-Pan, at number 2 was Magic time, and at number 3 was Zebra!

This is me and the other kids jury trying to pick the winning short!

After that, I went to see the Brazilian animated flick that is in competition this year, Until Sbornia Do us Part! This movie was so funny! All the jokes worked so well and that's saying a lot! There was a funny part every single 2 minutes and they were all funny! Another thing that I liked about the movie was the animation. It was so cartoony and the movements of the characters made it even funnier the movie! If you want to see a full review of Sbornia,  click on the link below or click the Monday Morning Movie Magic Icon on the right of this blog!

After that, I headed to the In Conversation: With Directors John Musker and Ron Clements! The talk was so cool! Did you know that in production of the little mermaid, they were going to make a special character (A dolphin to be exact!) just for Robin Williams? Also did you know that Jim Carrey auditioned for the role of Prince Eric? You can find out more info at this link if you want to find out more info about this awesome event that I went to!
After that, I got an Autograph and picture with the directors!!!!

After that, It was the Awards Ceremony at Saint Bridges! YAY! I was going to present an honorable mention for Anatole's little Sauce pan! Here is a video of me presenting the awards!
