Last week was NYC's animation society ASIFA East's 43rd annual film festival. The evening was packed with multiple generations of east coast animators, including several of my first employers back in the early 90's. The films were, as always, a weird, fun mishmash of styles and approaches and I'm happy to report that the animated DON'T LET THE PIGEON STAY UP LATE! won 2nd place for commissioned films. First prize when to the Rauch Brothers who make those lovely cartoons based on storycorps recordings.
