Here it is folks! Your second installment of the Second Annual Channel Frederator Awards. In this episode we view the films that won the “Badass Bunny Award” category, as well as the film by Channel Frederator’s Youngest Filmmaker.
So, I’m sure you’re thinking - “Badass Bunnies?” Well…when we sit down and review all of the nomination categories you guys suggest and compare them to our various films, some just jump (or hop) out at us. When someone suggested “Badass Bunnies” we thought- how perfect! Bunnies run rampant in the history of Channel Frederator. It was stiff competition with these three. Elizabeth Ito’s “Hot Cross Bunnies” are a bunch of bunnies that, while oh-so-cute, would kick your butt in a heartbeat. Meanwhile, Ben Meinhardt’s bunnies were a whole different beast! In the two part “Animals In Love/Binge & Purge” happy bunnies transform into human-eating, civilization-destroying monsters. But in the end, the votes went to Choom’s little planet-eaters in “In the Beginning”. Who would have thought that this was how the world began? Also be sure to read the great interview that Jeaux did with Choom when her film first appeared on Channel Frederator.
In addition to these bunnies, we’ve got good ol’ Steve Levinson. Steve is definitely the youngest filmmaker to grace the pixels of Channel Frederator. We were very excited to honor him, not only because he managed to create such a great film at such a young age, but also because Steve has been a part of the Channel Frederator community for a long time - longer than me, actually!
Congratulations, Choom and Steve! Your awards are greatly deserved. Enjoy the films, folks! - Carrie
