Introducing the THIRD Animation Source Choice Awards

3rd ASCAs

It’s back!

The Animation Source Choice Awards (ASCA), not to be confused with the Animation Source Awards, which honour members of Animation Source and has been discontinued permanently, honour the best in animation from the previous year. The first year Animation Source hosted the awards, 157 people voted, and the winner of Best Picture was Rio. Last year, however, less than 20 people voted altogether, and it was decided that the awards should be cancelled. However, enough people have expressed interest in voting this time around, so it has been decided to give it another go.


The official section of the website for the ASCAs goes in-depth about all the information about the show, and past winners, but here’s a short summary: You, the members of Animation Source, can vote for your favorites from the previous year (in this case, you will vote for the animation from 2013), and the votes are counted up and a winner announced.

A New Logo for Sourcecast

Source logo 2013

Sourcecast is pleased to announce that we have a new logo, courtesy of Kelsey the Zombie, featuring characters from Balto, Lion King, 101 Dalmatians, Fox & the Hound, All Dogs Go To Heaven, Lady and the Tramp, Brother Bear and others.

This logo replaces the previous Sourcecast 2.0 logo, but not the favicon or iTunes logo.

Looking for a Rotation Staff

Currently, Sourcecast has three hosts, Skulblaka_Shur’tugal, Ancient Fairy Dragon and Juuchan17, but we’re looking for more than that. We want hosts that can come in every few episodes and rotate between each other. The only thing we ask for is that you have Skype and a working microphone. So if you’re interested, please leave a comment on this forum topic or send Skul a PM.

Robbie Rist Interview [UPDATED]

UPDATE: For now, this has been cancelled.

Sourcecast is pleased to announce that it has an interview lined up for voice actor Robbie Rist. Most of you might know him as the voice of Star in “Balto”, but he also has a lot of other credits, including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Naruto, and Doc McStuffins.

You are free to ask Mr. Rist any question you wish, and as many as you want; we really want this to be worth his time. The interview has not yet been scheduled yet (but IT WILL HAPPEN), so get to commenting with your questions!

Sourcecast’s Next Episode: You Decide!

It has been too long since a new Sourcecast episode has been released – almost a full year, actually. But never fear, for a new Sourcecast episode is on the horizon! And now it’s YOUR chance to decide what comes next!


The typical Sourcecast format includes news on current and upcoming animated films, news regarding Animation Source, maybe an interview with an AS member, a Plugged-in Review of older films, a review of someone’s fan works on the sites, and reading the mailbag. In this next episode, Samurott be doing an episode solo, and he wants you to write to him, what you would like to see changed. Do you want something else put in, or something old taken out? It’s up to YOU to decide what the next Sourcecast episode will be about!
