Manchester Animation Festival 2016 (Day 2)

Day 2 of Manchester Animation Festival kicked off with a special virtual reality animated experience called HooDoo by the animation company BlueZoo who gave a masterclass later in the afternoon. There was also the fantastic “Women in Animation” panel discussing the representation of women in animated films (something right up my street as you may know) as well as loads of great screenings although unfortunately, I didn’t get to see any films on this day!

Above are my photos for day 2 of the festival.

Manchester Animation Festival 2016 (Day 1)

Last week I was a volunteer photographer for the Manchester Animation Festival 2016, it was a great experience I met so many lovely people and saw some weird and wonderful short films. The itinerary for day one featured highlights such as a masterclass about the film Phantom Boy, a life drawing class and a conversation/award ceremony for Aardman Animation.

Above are some of the photos I took for the festival of day one.

I was also able to see a programme called “Student Films 1”, my personal highlights of this were Fishwitch, a fantastic stop-motion short directed by Adrienne DowlingTough an interesting look at familial cultural differences by Jennifer Zheng.

I will be posting a selection from Day 2 and 3 later this week!
