Prince Caspian

Well, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is finally out, and it's breaking all kinds of box office records. I haven't seen it myself yet, but as a member of the visual development team, I know first hand that it promises to be quite a visual spectacle. Here is a little peek at some of the artwork I produced for the film: a montage sequence of the Telmarines marshalling up the troops for battle and a light little scene featuring Wimbleweather and Glenstorm.

Shane Acker's 9

The feature length version of Shane Acker's short film "9" is scheduled for a December release. I'm over the moon that someone would make a feature like this. The voice cast will include Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Christopher Plummer and Crispin Glover. Here's the original award-winning short:

Nocturna and Mr. Collieu

I first heard about Nocturna many years ago on the Drawing Board, and eagerly awaited it's release. Apparently, the English language version was released in Europe last year, but I never heard anything about a US release. Anybody out there in animation land have any of the inside dope on this film? Will there be a US theatrical and/or DVD release?

Apparently, there is another film on the way by the same makers with a similar style called Mr. Collieu. Anyone know anything about it?
