Regina Animator Nominated For Academy Award

Canadian animator, Michael Thurmeier from Saskatchewan has been nominated for an Academy Award for the short animation film, 'No Time for Nuts'. The film features the time-travelling antics of Scrat the sabre-toothed squirrel and his acorn. The short film has the poor rodent teleported through time, from the French Revolution to the Roman Empire to the time of Michelangelo's David.

A complete version of the short film can be found here

This is one of the coolest animated shorts I have seen in a long time, especially because it features what i think is possibly the best character from the "Ice Age" movies.
I just wanted to let everyone out there know that I came across the video on www.gotuit.com, but they have it broken down into scenes so that you can view each one individually and send it to friends or embed it. Check it out at gotuit.com

Hey - thanks dani ... that is great!
