2020 Festival Coverage

(via Canterburyanifest.com) Headlining this years festival was Aliki Theofilopoulos, Story Artist, Writer, Director, and Executive Producer, who reflected on her 20+ year career in the US Animation Industry working in major studios including Disney and Dreamworks. Her talk was both inspiring and emotive. Kicking off the festival was a Clangers roundtable featuring the directors and producers, who brought a couple of friends along from the series.

DIsney and Dreamworks Story Artist, Animator, and Director, Kat Good also joined us, and she gave a great insight to the industry.  The GoJetters flew in and we were treated to a behind the scenes look at how an episode was made. Josie Corbin, model maker on many animated film, including Isle of Dogs, gave us an insight into the world of model making for stop motion. Alongside the talks, we had a wonderful selection of films from this years' competition, and a number of stop motion workshops.
