Alex might have been the only one to submit to annecy, I honestly don’t know. I can only speak for myself. I don’t really get the whole festival thing. Going to them and meeting fellow animators is cool, but I couldn’t care less about showing my stuff in a theater. However, Pictoplasma has always been very friendly and supportive of me, I try to submit to that one if I have something. Also I submitted to Ottawa this year, but yeah, mostly just interested in seeing my LNWC friends again. Don’t tell Ottawa I said that.
No mentors, but Katsuhiro Otomo is the best!
