Shaun Tan’s Oscar nomination

Meant to post about this when I read it in Thursday’s Age newspaper. My favourite author/illustrator Shaun Tan has another accolade. This time he has an Oscar nomination.  The nomination is for his short animation for The Lost Thing. I wrote a post back in May last year about the short film. If you haven’t already , have a look  the film’s site. The Australian Newspaper also had a brief comment from Shaun about his nomination

If you are interested in more of the Oscar nominations the SBS site offers a complete list of nominations.

I also collected some other videos in Vodpod with that offers a snippet with Shaun Tan on The Lost Thing film which was narrated by Tim Minchin.

A good video to have on the screen in the library and the year 7 common space. A great way to catch the boys attention  at the start of this school year.
