The Oscar-nominated Disney short Feast, starring a Boston Terrier named Winston, marks the directorial debut of animator Patrick Osborne. The six-minute film successfully expands upon the studio’s non-photorealistic rendering techniques that were introduced in Paperman, the 2012 Oscar-winning short on which Osborne served as animation supervisor.

At the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, where Feast premiered last summer, Cartoon Brew spoke with Osborne about the inspirations and ideas behind the film.

Less successful than the visual and technical experimentation in Feast was Cartoon Brew’s experiment to shoot the interview with Patrick using a Google Glass. Pardon the video quality.
