DRIVING by Nate Theis


Online Premiere: ‘Driving’ by Nate Theis

This interview is part of our coverage of animated shorts that are currentlyunder consideration for the 2015 Academy Awards.

Six years ago, I called Madison, Wisconsin-based Nate Theis my “favorite animation director of the moment.” The evidence at that point was a series of quirky, funny advertising spots that Theis had created for the Wisconsin ad agency Planet Propaganda.

Since that time, Theis has expanded his freelance resume to include projects with prominent West Coast animation companies like Cartoon Network and JibJab, and in summer 2014, he completed his first independent film, Driving.The film, which has traveled the festival circuit for the past year and picked up multiple honors along the way, makes its online debut today.
