The Halloween Book Festival & Aliens to Zombies Convention Honor ‘The World Within’

Well, yes! The World Within has won another honorable mention. This time under the ‘Fantasy’ category at the Halloween Book Festival.
The Halloween Book Festival is part of the Aliens to Zombies Convention which will be taking place in Hollywood, California at the W Hotel on October 29 and 30, 2012.
This Convention also honors films, documentaries, short films, animation, student films and screenplays. Of course, as any other convention, there will be panelists, lectures and of course a Halloween costume party. From what I read, this is their second year in what promises to become a fun event that brings together visual artists, film makers, writers and creature-crafters from all over the world.

Here is the list of the Halloween Book Festival winners:

Congratulations to all who placed!

Argine – Wonderful Animation

I was just browsing short animated films on You Tube and came across this one. The captions underneath are in Russian, but thanks to Google translate, they say:

Dreams come true, you only have to wish!
A touching story of a little dreamer who wants to be in a fairy tale.


Animation to love

Yes, I’m a sucker for short animated films, clay animation, stop motion and computer animation as well. And so, I have chosen three of my favorites to share over here. There is a recurring theme in the three of them, but I won’t spoil it by giving it away. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Honestly, I don’t know which one I like the most!
