On Thursday May 8th 2014, we held our annual Producers’ Show at the Television Academy in North Hollywood. This year’s show featured guests of honor Chris Buck (Director, Frozen) and Michael Giaimo (Art Director, Frozen), who gave out the Walter & Gracie Lantz Animation Prize to Jacob Streilein for his film There’s a Man in the Woods and the Peers’ Pick to Ricky Cometa for Corridors. The show’s full film list is posted on the CalArts blog, and you can view most of this year’s films on our Vimeo channel.
