Annecy 2011 Daily Coverage: Day 3

The Show goes on.

The Annecy 2011 daily coverage is presented by Erlend Dal Sakshaug.

Day 3 at the Annecy festival turned out to be quite interesting. I managed to pull my self through nearly 8 hours of shorts, presentations and documentaries. The highlight of the day was possibly seeing the world premier of the new Pixar Short: “La Luna”, presented by the director Enrico Casarosa. He was even joined by the good people at Disney, Blue Sky and Warner Animation.
