A couple of other good things came out of the GRAPIC weekend – we were introduced to two new animated film properties. Here's the wonderful Shaun Tan vision of his The Lost Thing. The trailer is first and then the actual 10 minute animated film, followed by Legends of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga Hoole, which features the wonderful voice talents of Hugo Weaving and Sam Neil amongst other Aussies. Zack Snyder is the director. Even the Harry Potter owls didn't get centre stage like this.
(Hmmm... maybe someone can also tell us why these embedded videos are no longer fitting into the Blogger template. You might be better off looking at them directly on YouTube.)
