My friend Bastien Dubois’ short film Madagascar, Carnet De Voyage is nominated for an oscar!!! OMG! ITs an AMAZING short and I hope it beats Pixars short. It’s by far a better film and I personally think aesthetically Bastiens film blows any other short animation out of the water! He uses so many mediums from 3d animation to actual sewn animation. GENIUS.
I met Bastien officially at the Ottawa International Animation Festival, but really got to know him while I was at Sundance 2010 (our films were in the animation block together).
Not only is he a sweetheart, but he’s a freaking talented beast. I sure hope the academy recognizes him tonight! GO BASTIEN!!!!
