This is a chance to learn hand-drawn
animation from one of Australia's finest exponents. Lee will take
workshop participants through her process of creating animated films
and assist them to realise their own artistic visions.
One participant will also be offered
funding from MIAF and on-going mentorship from Lee to complete their
own short film over the course of the next 6-12 months!

Alex Stitt is, in the truest sense of the word, one
of the pioneers of the Australian animation scene. His feature film
'Grendel Grendel Grendel' was a milestone in Australian animating
when it was released and his animated ads shaped the TV-scape and
gave the box a real Australian edge. 'Life – Be In It' and
'Slip Slop Slap' are surely pure classics of the genre.
This special occasion at MIAF, will be a more illustrated
‘fireside chat’ (without the fire) than tribute. Alex
will present a few treasures from his lifetime of animating, discuss
their creation and share his reflections on his work.
