Your Daily Horoscope

One of the lovely things about having spent a decade or more working with young early career animators is… I know a lot of young early career animators! A few days back I received an email from Urvashi Lele, who I had the pleasure of supporting and working alongside all the way back in 2014. Urvashi’s award-winning graduate film, An Interview With The Owl & The Pussycat, established her as a talent to watch. After graduating, Urvashi completed a Master of Fine Arts in Animation at the University of California, Los Angeles and she hasn’t looked back since.

In her recent email, Urvashi had this exciting news to share:

“Hullo Phil! Hope you are keeping safe and well during this ridiculously crazy time. I’m writing to share a project that I have been a part of for the better part of the year- it’s a show on a mobile network called Quibi titled Your Daily Horoscope. The show is an adult comedy based on the 12 signs of the Zodiac. The animation team comprised of 24 animators with 2 animators for each sign. I animated the even episodes for the character, Aries.  Your Daily Horoscope is available to watch on Quibi, which can be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play and can be enjoyed with a free 2-week trial. I do hope you are able to watch it and enjoy it. It is something I am rather proud of and would love to know what you think!”

(“Bloody well done, Urvashi!” is what I think!)

  1. You have very talented (and lucky, of course) students! Your Daily Horoscope seems genuinely hilarious. “Whatever that horoscope is saying, if it’s disagreeing with me, it’s bull***t.” That’s essentially my new motto.
    It is also very reminiscent of Bojack Horseman. Bojack is still, in my view, one of the best shows to ever exist, in and out of the animated category. Did you happen to train any of the animators on it?

  2. I don’t think so, but then I’m always surprised where the graduates end up. They pop up all over the place. My plan is to feature more of them on here and shout their achievements from this particular roof-top 🙂

  3. Wow – that’s very generous, supportive and thoughtful of you, Jo(insert moustache here)o-Maria! I did have a quick peek; you same some lovely things. I’m blushing bashfully here at my desk in a small fishing village somewhere in the UK – that’s the power of the internet right there!
