Nomination Detail

Made by five animators over a period of twelve years, Saving Sally is a story of unrequited love and monsters both real and metaphorical. Told through a mixture of animation, live action actors and painted backgrounds, Avid Liongoren’s film recounts the story of Marty, an aspiring comic-book artist who is secretly in love with his best friend, Sally, an inventor of gadgets. Like every love story, there are complications: Sally has monsters for parents and already has an awful boyfriend. Meanwhile, geeky Marty has the innate ability to do nothing about everything despite his vivid fantasies of defending the love of his life from the big bad world.
