Help Borge and Joanika Ring recover from this fire... Read more »


This afternoon a brutal fire laid the house of my dear parents - Borge and Joanika Ring - to ashes. We're all devastated. You can find more detailed information in the article on the A-film blog. The good news is that Borge and Joanika are not injured. But everything else is gone... Borge currently can't write mails either as his computer is gone too.

I spoke to him a few minutes ago. He's holding up well. Both Joanika and Borge insist I do not cancel my flight to Los Angeles (I am collecting the award for Borge as he's too old to travel). If any of you attend the Annie Awards, I will see you there. As he has no e-mail right now, and you want to correspond, please feel free to do it the old fashioned way. Write him a letter. I can take them home after the awards. You can also send your letters to my address in Holland. I will make sure he gets them:
