The World Animation Celebration international animation festival focuses on promoting the brightest, most innovative, emerging talent from all over the world showcasing their films and achievements as original filmmakers. Our goal is to connect schools, studios, and filmmakers to create opportunities for all of our participants. Once a year the event brings together the world of animation films and creators providing a premiere forum to present the newest techniques as well as classic styles of the animation process. We celebrate those artists who make the world of animation what it is today and provide a glimpse at what inspires us; future artists, animators, students, and professionals who continue to pursue animation as a career.

A great loss. My first boss in the animation business. He was a amazing talent. We will miss you Will. 🙏🏼❤️

This morning our father, Will Vinton, passed away surrounded by love from his family. Will had endured a 12 year battle with Multiple Myeloma, although you never would have known of this fight. For the vast majority of that time he continued forward in his life with strength, positivity, and humor, enjoying tropical get-aways, shepherding new creative ventures, and caring for his two sons, daughter and wife. Will was the strongest man we have ever known, both in his work ethic and his mental resolve. He always said, “Do good work and everything else will follow,” and he never gave up on the things that were important to him. He saw the world as an imaginative playground full of fantasy, joy, and character. He instilled in us the greatest values of creativity, strength, and pride in ones own work. He created stories and characters filled with laughter, music, and powerful lessons that are globally beloved. He brightened any room with his signature mustache, and he continued to make jokes and laugh until the very end. His work will live on in animation history and will continue to inspire creative thinkers and makers.

We grieve heavily as our dad leaves a hole in our lives that will be impossible to fill. His wishes were for us to continue the projects he had started; we will try our best to do so. We will honor him in our own work and strive to always embody his lessons. We ask that his passing be a celebration of his life and work. He wouldn’t want us to be sad or discouraged, but rather to celebrate the wonder and beauty of life in his name. We ask for support and understanding for our family during this time. Please leave a comment if there’s something you would like to share about our father.

We love you Dad - Billy, Jesse & Alex

A celebration of our fathers life will take place at No Vacancy Lounge from 3:00 on Sunday October 21st.
