Announced earlier this month, the Green Lantern: First Flight direct-to-video animated feature received a nomination in the 37th Annual Annie Awards, awards recognizing the years best animated features, television productions, commercials, short subjects and more. The nomination is as follows.
The Worlds Finest was able to talk to Alan Burnett, writer of the Green Lantern: First Flight animated feature, for a statement on the feature’s nomination
“I was very grateful for everyone’s work on the film and how it turned out,” says Burnett. “Lauren Montgomery and her team visualized a whole new and quite extensive universe, which is no small feat considering the constraints of DVD production.”
When asked if he would consider writing a follow-up for Green Lantern: First Flight, Burnett seemed fond of the idea.
“Of course I would love to return to Oa,” exclaims Burnett. “These days it seems to be the happenin’ place.”
The Annie Awards honor overall excellence in the field of animation as well as individual achievement in a total of 24 categories ranging from production design, character animation, and effects animation to storyboarding, writing, music and voice acting. More details can be found at the official website for the 37th Annual Annie Awards. Award recipients will claim their trophies at the 37th Annual Annie Awards scheduled for Saturday, February 6th, 2010 at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles, California.
