Feb 20, 2010 Update: Good news, Madame Tutli Putli (the full film video) is now online. Watch it and see for yourself.
National Film Board of Canada has 12 Oscars and 70 nominations over the years. And in the last 4 years alone, there were 4 Oscar nominations and 2 wins! See my previous blog entry about the Oscars winning Ryan and The Danish Poet.
For 2008, I am in love with Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski‘s Madame Tutli Putli (their site has interviews, trailer, photos, and even a good part of the movie). The eyes of Madame Tutli Putli were just spectacular and beautiful thanks for the wonderful special effects work by Jason Walker (read this article for special effects) and the beautiful eyes of Laurie Maher (see a video and an article in TorStar).
Wishing Chris Lavis, Maciek Szczerbowski, their team, and NFB the best of luck this Sunday at the Oscars.
