Sebastian's Voodoo

Earlier this year I went to the Sedona Film Festival in Arizona, a real stand out event, as you can see form the video blog here. While there, a young and very talented animator gave me a copy of his film on DVD – he had also won a prize for best animation at Sedona, and I just got around to watching it. His name is Joaquin Baldwin and his film is called Sebastian’s Voodoo, and you can watch it above (also there is an HD 720 QT here on his website).

It’s a terrific piece of animation as well as simple, powerful and emotive story telling. Really great work.

The film is also in the NFB online competition at the Cannes short film corner this year, and you can vote for it by clicking here. Good luck guys, you got my vote!

Great stuff!

Onwards and upwards!

    It’s a wonderful animation and I’ll certainly vote for it. In fact I came across it in another competition and chose to vote for it there too.
