viewing abstract

i received word today that my lil short called "viewing abstract" has been selected for the ottawa animation festival this year. other than the fact that i am overjoyed it was chosen, what i think is the cool thing about the selection is that i never had any intention of making it at all. it was spawned quite literally from sitting down at my computer after work on a friday night and doodling, until the next thing i knew, it was sunday evening and i had spat out a minutes worth of animation. no preproduction, no designs, no budget, no schedule, and definently no intention of making a short film. when lately everything i am involved with in this industry is solely dependent on such things, i think its neat that this short has been chosen for the festival which was made purely for shits and giggles on a lazy sudbury evening.
