Briefly: Animated Feature Oscar Rules Change; Spanish Animation Growing Globally; “Hero of Color City” at Cannes

  • Variety reports a change in the rules for the Best Animated Feature Film Academy Award that one recipient will be a producer on the winning film. Typically, two people are given the award, with the new rules stating that one be a producer and the other a director “and/or key creative individual.” In the event a film has a shared and equal director credit, a third statuette may be awarded.
  • Variety also reports that the Spanish animation industry is growing both in the domestic production market and as an export to foreign markets, with new distribution and broadcast deals bringing substantial amounts into an otherwise beleaguered industry.
  • The Hollywood Reporter notes that U.K.-based Moviehouse Entertainment is shopping around their animated feature The Hero of Color City at the Cannes Film Festival. The movie is directed by Frank Gladstone and stars Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, and Craig Ferguson, and is slated for release in summer 2014.

Last pup of a dying planet, a young German Shepherd is rocketed to Earth, where he is bombarded by cosmic gamma rays emitted by a radioactive spider. Crash-landing in the forgotten land of Hubba Hubba, he is discovered by the Who-You-Callin'-Ancient One and his lovely wife Pookie. Instilled with their traditional American values, he spends his young adulthood roaming the globe, learning all the secrets of Comic-Fu. Donning battle armor fashioned from spilled chemicals splashed by lightning, he becomes the Sensational Shield of Sequential Art ACE THE BATHOUND! Look, it sounds a lot better than the truth. Born in Brooklyn, moved to Queens at 3 and then New Jersey at 10. Throughout high school, college, grad school, and gainful employment, two things have remained constant: 1) I am a colossal nerd, and 2) I have spent far too much time reading comics, and then reading and writing about them. Currently working as a financial programmer in New York City, while continuing to discover all the wonderful little surprises (and expenses) of owning your a home in the suburbs. Shares the above with a beautiful, wonderful, and incredibly understanding wife named Frances (who, thankfully, participates in most of my silly hobbies) and a large furry dog named Brownie (who, sadly, does not).
