SCOTS film-maker Tessa Hartmann has slammed Alex Salmond’s Scottish Government, accusing them of ignoring her animated feature in favour of Disney Pixar movie Brave. Sir Billi, which has been in production for six years, premiered at the Sonoma International Film Festival in California last weekend.
But American-made Brave has been picked out as a highlight of the Edinburgh Film Festival later this year and is being promoted heavily by Visit Scotland. Tessa, who openly backs the Tories, said: “The Scottish Government have put £7million of above-the-line advertising and promotions into Brave. ...
The problem with the Scottish locals' CG movie is ... well, the bits and pieces I have seen didn't knock me out. (And the critics have not been kind.)
The clips floating around the intertubes come off like Jimmy Neutron episodes. The art form has moved waaay past Jimmy.
