Abdul Ndadi is an animator from Ghana and a graduate from the School of Visual Arts, NY class of 2013.  He’s created an animation film entitled Orisha’s Journey (2014) which will be shown at the Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan (21st August 2014 - 25th August 2014).

Orisha’s Journey is a fantasy tale of a girl’s journey through the spirit world (‘Orisha’ denotes a spirit in Nigerian Yoruba cosmology), who must learn about the importance of remembering one’s roots. The film, set in a mysterious walking forest, explores the power of a child’s imagination and the deep meanings and manifestations of Africa.

The film is based on African folklore. I want to show another side to Africa besides safaris, so I explore different aspects of different countries around Africa in order to give the viewer a pan-African experience. It’s important to me that Africans feel that no matter where they’re from, they’re part of my film. In the West, there is not a lot of exposure to real Africans  — most people only go as far as The Lion King.  I want to take people farther, to create a deeper meaning. There is a word in Ghanaian: “Sankofa” – it means to return that which was lost. It is a symbol for not forgetting your roots and learning from the past. It is said that a tree without roots cannot stand. - Abdul Ndadi

You might not know his face- but if you’re a fan of Gravity Falls you know his work. Art Director Ian Worrel (http://enworrel.blogspot.com) just won an Emmy for individual achievement in art direction, and the team here at GF couldn’t be more proud. Ian himself is a pretty humble and reserved guy, so this is the perfect place to brag about him and totally embarrass the guy. Deal with it, Ian! 

If Gravity Falls was a real town, Ian Worrel would be its true founder, landscaper and architect. Every gnarled tree, cluster of moss, sweeping vista, creepy cave and foggy forest, not to mention the Mystery Shack itself- were conceived, drawn, and painted under his expert guidance. The guy is a legit genius, a natural talent, and of the most hardworking, warm, and genuinely smart people in the industry. 

When I was in my 3rd year in college, I had the absurd good fortune to be Ian’s room-mate. We were basically the Goofus and Gallant of CalArts. He would get up every morning at the crack of dawn to work diligently on his film, following his schedule and improving his craft with a level of seriousness and focus that became campus legend.  I on the other hand would wake up at noon, forget to shower, chase ducks around and almost get arrested by campus security for riding a miniature motorcycle throughout he halls. Imagine my surprise that this guy would agree to work with me then- and continue to do so all these years. I’m lucky to call him a collaborator, but even luckier to call him a friend.

And now that Ian is suitably embarrassed, I will share with you a never before known piece of Gravity Falls trivia. You know that stamp in the theme song title card? Does it resemble anyone to you? 

There is no Gravity Falls without Ian Worrel. Congrats buddy on this latest achievement! We’re all so proud to work alongside you.

Take a look at this. That right there is the mail. Now, let’s talk about the mail. Can we talk about the mail, please, Mac? I’ve been dying to talk about the mail with you all day, okay. Pepe Silvia- this name keeps coming up over and over again. Everyday, Pepe’s mail keeps getting sent back to me. Pepe Silvia- Pepe Silvia. I look in the mail, this whole box is PEPE SILVIA! So I say to my…self, I’ve gotta find this guy. I’ve gotta go up to his office. I’ve gotta put the mail in his goddamn hands otherwise he’s never gonna get it. It’s gonna keep coming back down here. So, I go up to Pepe’s office and what do I find out Mac? What do I find out? There is no Pepe Silvia! The man does not exist, okay. So, I decide, ohh shit buddy, I’ve got to dig a little deeper. There’s no PEPE SILVIA! You’ve got to be kidding me, I’ve got boxes full of Pepe! Alright, so I start marching my way down to Carol in H.R. and I knock on her door and I say “CAROLL CARRROLLLLLL!! I’ve gotta talk to you about Pepe!” And when I open the door, what do I find? There’s not a single goddamn desk in that office. There is no Carol in H.R. Mac, half the employees in this building have been made up. This office is a goddamn ghost town.

this got even better when someone told me that pepe silvia was probably charlie’s reading of the word “pennsylvania”

Oh my god
