Story Orgy – Kevin D.A. Kurytnik

Kurytnik is one of Canada’s most inspiring
animation teachers. In one intensive, free-wheeling day, he will
present the fundamentals of story development with a back-up toolkit
packed with literary and cinema references, short animated examples,
and plenty of surprises. The PERFECT day out for artists, writers,
animators & creators of comics and graphic novels.
In the early 1990’s, after taking a course
at the Quickdraw Animation Society (we have 2 big programs celebrating
QAS's 30th Anniversary - see links below), Kurtynik started teaching
animation there, and in doing so, more or less singlehandedly established
the Quickdraw Animation Society as a uniquely powerful place for
people from all walks and with wildly varying experience and abilities
to learn how to animate. Kurytnik’s contribution is impossible
to understate. He has an almost supernatural ability to infuse people
with the magic they need to become animators. Many filmmakers credit
him as being the reason they learned to animate or the reason their
film was made.
For anyone wanting to take home a unique experience,
this is the workshop for you.
Please note, lunch is not included.
