A quick review of Annecy 2006
The winner is on the right on the last image, with the jury.
The winner for best feature film was Renaissance, a feast of Motion Capture (now snootily called Performance Capture). Did they win because they were even able to capture the pupils in the eyes?
In any case, the jury put MoCap over Wallace & Gromit, and our own Asterix, and it certainly raised MY eyebrows.
It was great to see Cars, screened two hours before the official US release. That and the MOST wonderful screening in many years, 12 Silly Symphonies, reminded me why I ever became interested in animation: entertaining stories, great characters, wonderful, cheerful colors, clear compositions, and upbeat humor.
Oh, how I wish there was more of that...
