2007 ANNIE AWARD NOMINATION

44 comments
Fellow bloggers, I have some really good news -- I have been nominated for an Annie Award under the Production Design in an Animated Feature Production category.

Special congratulations to the other nominees for a job well done! The nominees for this category are as follows:

Doug Chiang – "Beowulf" – Paramount Pictures

Harley Jessup – "Ratatouille" – Pixar Animation Studios

Marcelo Vignali – "Surf’s Up" – Sony Pictures Animation


All in all, Sony Pictures Animation has 10 nominations this year, and I have the distinct privilege of being one of those ten representing the company, our movie, our team and my work.

Wish us luck! And, if you are a member of the academy...I sure would appreciate your consideration.

Although, it's some really stiff competition, particularly the Ratatouille dude.
And an awesome sketch in this post.
