Chico & Rita nominated for an Oscar

Quite out of the blue today I got an email from our producer on Chico and Rita informing me that it has been nominated for an Oscar. This is great news, if you recall I worked on that animation for a good long while (November 2008 until the end of February 2010, almost 16 months) It was a big and intense project filled with a great many ups and downs, but on the whole I'm pleased with my contribution to it. Its awhile since I've thought about that job and in hindsight I really miss our studio set up there. still onwards and upwards now at least I can go off to do my masters with a little confidence knowing that I worked on an Oscar nominated animation :)

I heard that oscar anouncement and thought of you straight away- congratulations. You will be great at animation, you have a lovely way with characters. I always looked forward to seeing your work on a Friday morning. Good luck, but truthfully you don't need it, you're more than good enough xx
