I thought Logorama--a must-see clever short made up entirely of commercial logos-- would be too hip for the Academy, which would go for Nick Park for the second time, but they must have gotten tired of Wallace & Gromit being nominated five times before. The live action short The New Tenants was my favorite and I shouldn't have listened to the people telling me why it couldn't win! So much for winning any Oscar pools. The five films vying for doc short were all strong, but I admit that HBO's Music by Prudence, about a disabled South African singer, haunted m...

    Kiwi Shorts: New Zealand Filmmakers Conquer Sundance, Take Aim at Berlin

    Could 2010 be the year that New Zealand short filmmakers take over the world? The year began promisingly as Mark Albiston and Louis Sutherland's "The Six Dollar Fifty Man" took the jury prize in international short filmmaking at January's Sundance Film Festival. And now at Berlin, Katie Wolfe's "R...
