MMI Screening on December 12 / Annie Awards

Hey everyone, great news!  My new animated feature "Cheatin'" just got nominated for THREE Annie Awards, in the categories of Best Animated Feature, Best Directing in an Animated Feature, and Best Music in an Animated Feature.

If you don't know about the Annies, they're run by ASIFA-Hollywood, and they're sort of like animation's equivalent to the Oscars, and they are taken very seriously by all the big studios.  So, for "Cheatin'" to get three nominations, it's a big deal and it means that my film should be taken seriously as a contender.

(In other words, my $400,000 movie is kicking butt against some very expensive films with $200,000,000 budgets.)

So, in order to celebrate this wonderful event, the Museum of the Moving Image is having a party in my honor - also, to celebrate my screening of "Cheatin'" at their wonderful theater, and also a gallery exhibition there.

The event will be on Friday, December 12, at 7 pm - presented in collaboration with ASIFA-East.  After a special "sneak preview" of "Cheatin'" (we'll have more news shortly about this winter's release dates) there will be a reception, during which you can take in the exhibition "Plymptoons: Short Films and Drawings by Bill Plympton".  Oh, and everyone who comes will also get a free signed sketch from me - I'll be there drawing until my hand falls off. 

So, if you live in NYC or the nearby tri-state area, bring your friends and come celebrate the success of "Cheatin'" and have a drink with me.  The Museum of the Moving Image is located at 36-01 35th Ave. in Astoria, Queens.

Oh, and the Annie Awards ceremony will be held on Saturday, January 31 in Los Angeles at UCLA's Royce Hall.  Wish me luck!
