Spend the day immersed in the world of animation with producer Teri Snelgrove from the National Film Board of Canada’s BC & Yukon Studio. Using films from the NFB’s collection, Teri will provide an overview of the different kinds of animated work the NFB has produced over the years.
From classical 2D animation to puppet-based stop motion and beyond, Teri will show films and talk about the animated techniques used to make them, taking questions along the way.
She’ll close the day by talking about how the NFB works as a creative producer and distributor (including our Filmmaker’s Assistance Program), and what kinds of materials are generally needed to put together a strong pitch package.
