Proud of Stephane Halleux’s Oscar win for Mr. Hublot! Remember my interview with him in Coilhouse? Co-directors Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares were the official nominees, but it’s all Stephane’s character designs and universe, and he was at the ceremony to share the spoils. Wooee!


Ten Titles Make the Oscar Short List

6. Mr. Hublot - Laurent Witz and Alexandre Espigares


Last night was my friend’s annual outing to see all of the Oscar nominated animated shorts at IFC. ‘Mr. Hublot’ was my favorite (followed closely by ‘Room on the Broom’) but I expect ‘Feral’ to win. (Not pictured in this trailer: robot dog.)

Oh shit so apparently “Mr. Hublot” (last year’s winning animated short) has an official art book now! On top of having some great movies there’s been some beautiful shorts in the last couple years that have been getting an incredible amount of attention. Like I know “Feast” had special lithographs and such, but to see an actual artbook for something that’s not even from a major studio is awesome.
