Tony White's Hokusai Animated Sketchbook & Tod Polson's Heads Up

Tony White :
"This was my first ever... and still my favorite... short animated film! I created it in my spare time while I was still a director/animator at the Richard Williams Studio in London during the late 1970's. I actually started the film after we had completed 'A Christmas Carol', when I was Richard Williams' own personal assistant at the time. 'Carol' went on to win the first of Dick's three Oscars. When my own 'Hokusai' film won a British Academy Award I moved on to set-up the 'Animus Productions' animation studio... a creative entity I led for a further 20 award-winning years. The film itself was inspired by the wonderful sketchbooks of Hokusai. When I saw them I realized that this artist was indeed a true animator at heart... he just didn't have the knowledge or the technology to be one in his lifetime. I therefore sought to bring his drawings to life for him, as homage to his genius"

Genius by a genius.

Also received a heads up on what been going on in Tod's life lately when he kindly gave some of his spare time between his busy schedule about a week ago to chat with me.

Tod's busy between film lectures in Denmark and working on his animation projects in Thailand. I totally admire him for his ability to adapt, explore and broaden his horizons wherever the adventure takes him.

Here's some links thanks to Tod :

I for one have been anticipating The Book of Kells release for quite some time now and can hardly compose myself. A beautiful and masterful work of art! Congratulations to Tod and the Kells team for all their hard work and perseverance for this top quality animation. Am also looking forward to the Gingerbread man once it's completed.

Cheers folks!
