Jason Reisig – Bug Therapy

Jason Reisig (USA)Bug Therapy, Animation – A pitch-perfect, creative and impactful animation led by exceptional industry veteran Reisig, (Academy Award recipient for SciTech Technical Achievement, Co-director of Warner Bros Smallfoot, Head of Character Animation for Dreamworks: Home, Shrek Forever After, Trolls). Carried by a poignant and witty script from Emmy-nominated writer Michael Jann (Tonight Show) and Michele Jourdan of Citronella Stories and featuring a truly outstanding ensemble cast. In Bug Therapy, Citronella (Grammy-winner – Meghan Trainor), a mosquito who faints at the sight of blood, tries to muster the courage to attend group therapy, led by Dr. Pill (Daytime Emmy-winner – Dr. Phil McGraw), to overcome her phobia. She learns that everyone faces mental health struggles – Stick Bug (Emmy-winner Sterling K. Brown) battles depression over never feeling seen, Fly (Emmy-winner Jay Leno) is OCD/germaphobe and can’t stop washing his hands, Grasshopper (MTV Movie Awards-nominee Tom Green) suffers from addiction to coffee, Praying Mantis (Emily Goglia) is narcissistic/delusional and believes she’s God, Dragonfly couple (Michael Jann and Michele Jourdan) are co-dependent and Spider (Reisig) tries to overcome his phobia of spiders.

Cinzia Angelini – Mila

Cinzia Angelini (USA)Mila, Animation – Award-winner industry veteran Angelini (Spider-man 2, The Minions Movie) delivers a heart wrenching story of war from a child’s perspective. Inspired by World War II stories from her mother, Mila represents the best of humanity. Although she has lost everything – she still clings to hope, profoundly impacting others. It represents all children, in any war, of any time and the indomitable human spirit that manages to transcend almost any tragedy, or circumstance. Deftly directed with engaging characters, authentic sets and beautiful animation.  Moving and impactful in every way.  In order to create a film that speaks to everyone – the filmmakers chose not to have dialogue – instead relying on the universal language of music in the form of a beautiful soundtrack by Flavio Gargano (Obki, Swinging Roma). From PepperMax FilmsPixel CartoonIbiscusMediaCinesite and Aniventure.
