Animation Duo, Tiny Inventions, Get Academy Nomination for “Negative Space”

Woolf+Lapin’s writing and directing team of Tiny Inventions get an Academy nomination for best animated short. Their film is stop-motion animation and is titled, Negative Space. The pithy logline goes something like this: “My dad taught me how to pack.”

It’s a very touching story… Before this nomination the film got the nod pretty much all over the world.
