The 12th Annual Waterfront Film Festival is taking place this weekend in Saugatuck, Michigan.
Thursday was the opening night gala featuring an outdoor screening of the Academy Award Nominated Animated Short Films. http://www.shortshd.com/theoscarshorts/
- The Lady and the Reaper – a sweet old lady is waiting for death so she can join her husband once again, but someone is trying to ruin it for her
- A Matter of Loaf and Death – Wallace and Gromit now have a successful baking business, and someone is killing off bakers
- Logorama – car chases, a hostage crisis and wild animals in a city of famous logos (Winner of the Best Animated Short Academy Award)
The animation styles were different in each of the five films. The Lady and the Reaper is funny and original. I always love Wallace and Gromit, and A Matter of Loaf and Death does not disappoint. Logorama is very clever, funny and exciting. The story involves famous “spokescharacters” such as Big Boy, Mr. Clean, Ronald McDonald and Michelin Men (as police, no less).
