FFF 2009 Vet Earns Student Oscar

FFF 2009 Vet Earns Student Oscar

Belated congratulations to Joaquin Baldwin of UCLA, whose short film, SEBASTIAN’S VOODOO, was recently named one of three winners in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences 36th Annual Student Academy Award competition. The visually stunning CGI work was one of the true highlights of this year’s Animated Shorts program in the Florida Film Festival, and its heroic tale of a voodoo doll who must summon the courage to save his fellow dolls from their human captor earned one of the highest Audience Award scores in the entire festival.

While Joaquin knows he’s one of three winners in the Animation category, his placement–Gold, Silver, or Bronze (each worth a different cash grant amount)–will not be announced until a ceremony on June 13 at the Academy’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. Best of luck, Joaquin! We’ll be rooting for you.
