Candy Kugel's latest short (completed just as the Covid 19 shutdown happened) is finally having its world premiere! "Miracle on Central Park West" is selected for the 2020 Woodstock Film Festival!

I finished "Miracle on Central Park West" just as the Covid19 shutdown happened. No film festivals! But just now the Woodstock Film Festival selected "Miracle on Central Park West" to participate in the 2020 edition! I'm thrilled!

Being isolated at Buzzco often has its surprises. Anthony Tafuri, son of Fleischer animator Nick Tafuri, called asking me to identify those who celebrated Nick's career by The Society of Animators in 1979. Anthony got the pages scanned and sent me these pages.
Nick was responsible for my late partner, Vincent Cafarelli, getting a job at Famous Studios in the 1950's. By far I was the youngest member there-- most of the animators were 1 or 2 generations older than I was, still in my 20's. Tom Sito, Amid Amidi, Jerry Beck, Richard O'Connor, Nancy Beiman (and anyone else!)-- feel free to share and identify.

Earlier this month, Buzzco had a visit by a Chinese delegation. The delegation members include producers and directors as well as animators from CCTV, and other large TV station animation channels/companies in China. Delegates saw portions of "I, Candy"and Candy explained how to adapt a story to a film, and how she decides a technique or style to use for a particular film.
Julia Xiaoyan Fan, Managing Director of iBridge Language, an educational consulting firm, connecting Chinese delegations with American companies and organizations.
Delegates asked questions and were delighted with their visit. They even asked Candy if she would be willing to come to China!
