DOC BC is organizing a workshop on how animation and documentaries work together in the collaborative and creative process. At this event, a panel of 3 speakers will engage in a discussion touching on topics such as:

– where do documentary filmmakers go to find an animator?
– defining different types of animation and basic terms
– what to expect working with an animator
– examples of integrating animation (including credits and graphics) into documentaries

The panel of 3 presenters are all accomplished artists with plenty of animation experiences to share:

Ann Marie Fleming is an award-winning artist, writer and independent Canadian filmmaker who works in a variety of different genres (animation, experimental, documentary and dramatic).  Her work often deals with themes of family, history and memory.

David DeCoursey: an accomplished digital artist, with skills in both visual effects and motion graphics. Over the past several years, he has worked professionally in the industry as a digital compositor on shows ranging from the SyFy Network’s EUREKA and SANCTUARY to V: THE SERIES, airing on NBC. He has also taught numerous courses in 2D animation at the non-profit film school, Pull Focus Films.

Martin Rose is an Associate Professor in the Faculty of Design and Dynamic Media at Emily Carr University of Art & Design where he teaches animation. In addition, Martin is an independent animator and recently worked part-time as a producer at the National Film Board, Pacific & Yukon Centre.

Join us on next week on March 12th for a fun and interactive discussion at VIVO Media Arts. We look forward to seeing you there!
