For an easy life I’m tempted to give up writing my blog in this form and compile the Acme Filmworks blog instead. I would be assured of a seemingly endless conveyor belt of talent from across the world and also be reacquainted with some old friends of the blog. Take Gianluigi Toccafondo, a director with a distinctive blend of live action and animation characters. His Running blends in the sites of Prague and the runners for their International Marathon to stylish effect. Meanwhile in the Bay of Huatulco Caroline Leaf whets one's appetite for the summer vacation with an appealing ad for the tropical beaches of Mexico's Huatulco with her mix of animation and film footage; Erica Russell uses a striking mix of red and black to promote the financial company Instinet in her elegant Bullfighter; and in Books the skilled hand of Sarah Van den Boom has Lilliputians garbed in their academic robes crawling through giant books for the Californian University of Pennsylvania. Wendy Tilby, Amanda Forbis, Bill Plympton, Joanna Quinn, Danny Cannizaro ....... the fabulous list goes on and on. Thanks to Acme for their comprehensive website and all ads we don't see here in the UK.
