Oscar Award nominee has Regina connection
A Regina man is part of a group receiving a nod for an Academy Award for the film Wild Life, which got the nomination for best animated short film.
David Taylor, who worked on audio production for the film, says the distinction is great for the film and his employer Regina production company The Twister Pair Group.
“It’s the biggest nomination that anyone can be involved in,” said Taylor.
The film itself is tied to the prairiesand explores a British man's attempt at ranching in Alberta in 1909. Taylor says he jumped at the chance to work with the National Film Board.
“It’s Canadian history. I was so excited that I was invited. And to see this happen… I’m over the moon. It’s amazing.”
