Jerry and I both attended the Ottawa International Animation Festival and, like everyone else, had a wonderful time. Everyone that is except for Canadian animation artist Roxanne Ducharme who had a miserable week and tweeted every moment of the excruciating experience on her grouchily named Twitter account TrashCan Roxanne. Here’s a list of all the things she hated and why.
The film selections:
Watching films at #OIAF is like hitting yourself on the head with a hammer. It feels good when it stops.
The festival’s artistic director:
New levels of pompousness from Chis Robinson have been reached tonight.
The films again:
Those films will suck the life out of you #oiaf #fail #ineedadrink
The closing awards ceremony:
No class watsoever here at the closing ceremony #oiaf #fail #chisrobinson
Getting ready for another day of torture here at the Ottawa animation film festival. Even the parties are not that great.
Even more films:
I already let out a loud “F*ck” after one of the worst film today… @LittleAnimation was proud of me.
And apparently everybody else attending the festival:
In Ottawa with a bunch of lunatics
