Animation World Magazine, Issue 2.1, April 1997

May issue highlights

The May 1997 issue will focus on animated commercials. It will include profiles of two major spot houses (the high tech Blue Sky Studios and the low-tech Acme Filmworks), along with Karl Cohen's look at (Colossal) Pictures journey in and out of bankruptcy. Suzanne Williams provides a survey of research on TV commercials aimed at children while Gene Walz provides a look back at Phillips-Gutkin-Associates, Canada's leading commercial producer during the 1950s, as well as Gunnar Strøm's "Fumes From the Fjords," in which he delves into Norwegian cigarette commercials from the 1920s and 1930s.

On the festival front, we will review the World Animation Celebration, Cartoons on the Bay and the Hong Kong Film Festival, Fred Patten takes a look at Antonia Levi's book, Samurai From Outer Space, and much, much more.
