Animation 102: The State Of Australian In Australia & Australian Panorama Intro (2008)
"The State of Animation in Australia & An Intro to The Australian Panorama" presented by Andrew Hagan & Malcolm Turner (AIAF Co-Directors) with visiting Australian Filmmakers.
Animating in Australia is as challenging as any occupation. Australian animators are creating world beating creative films as well as working in ads, music videos, gaming and on-line. AIAF in Wagga Wagga is the first comprehensive collection of Australian animation to screen each year. AIAF's co-directors use the experience of pulling the Australian Panorama together combined with their extensive knowledge of the broader Australian animation creative, commercial and funding scenes to present a "State of the Animated Nation" address, with a special focus on the films selected for screening in AIAF 08.
Filmmakers with a film in the festival will be encouraged to participate in the address and there will be screenings of recently made commercial works as well as excerpts from works in progress. We are thrilled to announce John Lewis will be presenting his trilogy of stop-motion short films including The Birdhouse, The Boy Who Wanted to Touch the Moon, and his latest award-winning creation - The Designer.
