Robb Denovan too busy to party
By DENIS ARMSTRONG -- Ottawa Sun


Robb Denovan wasn't in the mood to party after the film he helped create took home an Oscar Sunday night.

The 26-year-old Carleton Place resident, one of four animators responsible for the stunning, computer-generated images that earned Ryan the Oscar for best animated short, was happy for the win but was too busy getting ready to move to New Zealand on Saturday.

You see, he has a date there with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson who wants an animated King Kong to go with the full-length movie version.

"No, Robb was low-key all night," his father Jack said yesterday. "He went to bed shortly after the award was announced because he and his girlfriend had to get back to Toronto. He has a lot of loose ends to tie up before he leaves."

Directed by Chris Landreth, Ryan charts Montreal animation pioneer Ryan Larkin's meteoric rise and subsequent descent into alcoholism and homelessness.

Denovan left Carleton Place in 1997 to study animation in Toronto where Landreth recruited him while still a student at Seneca College.

Yesterday, Landreth said the Oscar win felt like an out-of-body experience.

" He's looking at me right now," he said when asked what it was like waking up with the shiny little gold fellow.
