Update: French Roast has been nominated for this year's Oscars along with; "Granny O'Grimm's Sleeping Beauty," "The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte)," "Logorama," "A Matter of Loaf and Death." See how it compares to the Annie Awards List.
Earlier Post: In an 'acting' lecture at the 2009 Gobelins summer school Alexandre Heboyan used the short film "French Roast" (The Pumpkin Factory) as an example. Check out the film.
For anyone interested in a look inside at the Gobelins summer school, I'll post my notes about this part of Alex's acting lecture, referencing "French Roast" and what to observe, as the first comment.
