June Foray Narrates Video for AniMazSpot June Foray Narrates Video for AniMazSpot

The venerable first lady of animation, June Foray, has narrated the latest video for AniMazSpot. On the video, Foray looks at some of the highlights of AniMazSpot 2011, the yearly festival for and about animated shorts filmmakers. She also announces some of the plans for this September’s AniMazSpot 2012, as well as treating us to some of her most popular voices, and even came up with a voice for AniMazSpot’s Festival Juggler.

Terrific clips from many of the winning shorts add to the visual luster of the video, plus there are interesting comments from AniMazSpot festival goers, such as Christina Rooney, who brought four kids last year to allow them to see the latest in animation. Entrants also speak on what they like about the festival, such as Adriàn Garcia, from Monterey, Mexico, who thinks the comments by the jury panel for all entrants were “just amazing, and very useful.”

Foray’s says she’s most looking forward to UPA Day at this year’s festival, and lo and behold, Bill Melendez comes on commenting on what made UPA such a revolutionary animation studio, using clips from Gerald McBoing Boing, Tell Tale Heart, and Trouble Indemnity, starring Mister Magoo.  All this in less than 6 minutes.  It’s on the AniMazSpot website at www.animazspot.com.

If you have a short animation to submit, the 3rd Quarter of AniMazSpot 2012 is now open for entries, the deadline is April 23, 2012.  Find out more at www.animazspot.com, “submit a short.”
