Animation 101: Malcolm Turner - "Adventures in Ancient Animation"

Presented by Malcolm Turner
AIAF Co-Director, Malcolm Turner travels extensively in the course of pulling together this festival. This year he has spent several weeks immersed in the indie New York animation scene, a fantastic week rummaging through the 650+ films in the Zagrebfilm archive in Croatia, sat on the SIGGRAPH Asia 08 Jury, rubbed shoulders with a whole crew of Russian animators getting ready to celebrate the 60th anniversary of legendary Moscow animator Alexander Tatarsky and dropped into more than a dozen festivals. From this unique perspective, Turner will discuss these adventures in colourful detail as well as present an up to date snapshot of the contemporary indie international animation scene - complete with a special selection of the old and new films that excited him most.
