It’s that time again! Time to announce our March Cartoon of the Month. We had a really great variety of films that were contenders this month - bears, cars, ghosts, goldfish, narwhals, cupcakes and more. Honestly, though, in the end we all know that cupcakes RULE! So it’s really no surprise that Kirsten Lepore is taking home the totally sweet $100 prize-pack of exclusive Cartoon of the Month Channel Frederator merchandise for her film, Sweet Dreams.
Kirsten was Channel Frederator’s first featured filmmaker in episode #166. Our very own Bailee DesRocher did an awesome two part interview with Kirsten where she tells all about this great film. Make sure you check it out here, and here.
I also asked Kirsten what kind of advice she has for any of you creative filmmakers out there that want to win the Cartoon of the Month prize yourself. She says:
Story is key. Oftentimes you have to spend as much time planning out the concept as you do actually animating. People will forgive inconsistencies in the visuals, as long as the idea is captivating. Also, patience and perseverance are really important — as animators we have to work sooo hard to achieve the final product. Don’t give up!
Great advice, Kirsten! Thanks for sharing your film with Channel Frederator. And don’t forget to vote for your favorite films. And filmmakers, don’t forget to submit!
