BCN Sports Film Festival - Sumo animation aplenty!

"Sumo Lake" is proudly participating in the 2012 BCN Sports film festival, Barcelona. Yeah, I guess we're a "sports film". Sumo wrestling is a sport, and "Sumo Lake" is a film - so why not?

Surprised to learn that there's a number of films in their animation program. Not only are we kept company in the hand-drawn animation category with the work of some scribbler named Bill Plympton, but there is a hand-drawn sumo wrestling film that's not Sumo Lake

Laurene Braibant's "Sumo" is done in a skillful render of charcoal. Very classy, very dramatic. Can't wait to see more than just the teasers available on Vimeo.

Sumo Loch

If only Benjamin had worked bagpipes into the soundtrack, they would have loved it.
