Amazing Weekend!

This was quite the weekend! Not only did Coco win all 11 Annies it was nominated for, and The Breadwinner won as best independent feature - a warm congrats to all winners! - but on the local front, a lot happened, as well!

Saturday morning saw the premiere of our latest animated feature film Hodja fra Pjort in Imperial Bio here in Copenhagen, which Wikipedia describes as having "the largest single screen in Northern Europe with 1002 seats, which is also the biggest screen in the world to feature Dolby Atmos." It is also the first cinema where Atmos was installed. That was very exciting (but boy, was it cold outside)!

Then, Yesterday, at the Danish Film Academy's 2018 Robert Awards (the Danish "Oscars"), our film The Incredible Story of the Giant Pear won in these two categories: Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Children's/Youth Film! As editor (among other functions) of both movies, it was a time to be pretty darn proud! This images shows our trio of directors (L to R: Philip Einstein Lipski, Amalie Næsby Fick and Jørgen Lerdam) doing the thank-yous, while those of us who attended were behind them. I am right behind Philip and his curls!

(Beacuse of this, Fun and Fancy Free continues - tomorrow!)

It's always cold here in Denmark this time of year. Do
these shows get to be broadcasted on Danish TV?

You look handsome. :P I would've got to meet you on
Collector's Day in Brandts Museum when Disney - the Art
of Storytelling were exhibited, but it was bad timing.
I had to celebrate my birthday with my family that same
day, but I did get to see the exhibition on its last
week with my Copenhagen-family. Shows how hard it is
for me to go do things for myself without having someone
to be there for me
