Today’s Channel Frederator Awards episode features our Best Design winner. We see a lot of amazing cartoons float through here and it was so difficult to choose nominees for this category.
Nina Paley’s “Sita Sings the Blues” trailer was a quick add to our list. The design on this film is truly unique, and Nina managed to find ways of fitting numerous different styles into the same cartoon. “Carlos, My Name Is Not” was the little film that could. This film oozes french influence. Musician Maxime Robin worked with illustrator Pascal Blanchet to create this super-swanky and hip music video. Finally, Dave Wasson was another must-have to our nomination list, and the one to take home the prize for “Max and the Pigeon Incident”!
An industry vet, Dave has had a hand in a countless number of cartoon series. My favorites include the “Max”(see the two “Max” cartoons in Channel Frederator Episodes 58 and 13) and “Tales from the Goose Lady” (see the “Goose Lady” cartoons in Channel Frederator Episodes 31 and 83) series that he did for “Oh Yeah! Cartoons”, as well as the “Time Squad” series that aired on Cartoon Network. These cartoons prove that, not only does Dave Wasson have a killer sense of design, but he can tell a darn funny story, too!
Congratulations on your Freddie, Dave! - Carrie
