Watch the interview of Danish animator Børge Ring, talking about his Oscar-awarded short, Anna & Bella. RIP.

97-year-old Danish animator Børge Ring, who recently died (27 Dec 2018, born 17 Feb 1921) was a prolific animator and musician, who could easily move between personal and more commercial projects (more about his life at animationscoop.com)

Fresh from the Oscar victory for the short animated film Anna & Bella (1984) -watch it here-  Ring gave an interview in 1986 to Danish DR1 channel. He there talks about what animation can do (in contrast to live-action), his Oscar prospects, animation festivals and industry. He also performs as well.

His autobiography has been published in 2015 in both in Danish and Dutch. In 2012, he received the Winsor McCay Award (ASIFA-Hollywood) for his entire oeuvre as an animator.  Find his full filmography here.
