My Sister’s Butt wins award

May 4th, 2009 by Dayna


I am very pleased to announce that the music video I animated with Pilar Newton of Pilar ToonsMy Sister’s Butt,  won an Excellence in Writing/Humor Award in the Sponsored Category of the 2009 ASIFA East Animation Festival.   The award of course mostly goes to the four year old who wrote the song, for without her twisted mind, this video would not have been possible.  ASIFA-East celebrated its 40th Birthday last night, and the film played to a packed house.  It was so awesome seeing it on the big screen and hearing the audience reaction which can best be described as horrified yet tickled.  You can watch this video online at my web site.

Also if you missed last night’s fest, please check out Richard Gorey’s amazing opening film!  All I can say is wow!  Click here for a full list of festival winners.
