Saturday 21 June, 4.00pm festival
Australian Graduate Panorama
List of Australian filmmakers screening in
Immediately after the Australian Panorama screening,
join the filmmakers in the festival Club to talk about animating
The atmosphere is informal and relaxed. The aim
is to get as many perspectives as possible on the local animation
scene as it stands right now – the challenges, the opportunities,
the path ahead.
A Forum Panel will get things underway. The panel
will be made up of animators, producers and managers who are finding
ways of taking their animating skills out into the ‘real world’
through such means as creating animated clips for viral marketing
campaigns, commissioning & producing idents for a local TV channel
and making one-off ads – all done without
sacrificing the creative core of their artform.
But discussion will likely range much wider than
that and everybody will have a chance to have their say about what
they saw in the Australian Panorama and how they think animation
is travelling in Australia in 2008.
