Variety on Animation


FYI: Today’s Daily Variety has a special section focusing on animation. The print edition has a cool faux-celluloid cover advertising The Simpsons Movie. Among the articles within (all available online), “Why ‘Beowulf’ passed Oscar test but ‘Alvin’ didn’t,” Bill Plympton commentary on traditional hand drawn animation, and a piece on the Oscar chances of foreign animated features (namely Tekkonkinkreet and Persepolis) written by some guy named J. Beck.
