SANDDE™ Stereoscopic

A playful take on popular myths and cliches about love, and a sendup
of the glorious vertigo of ... falling in love.
Born in 1960 in New York City, Munro Ferguson showed an early interest in cartooning and made his first film, When I Get Older, at the age of 7. He has since designed the graphics for Atom Egoyan's Passing Through and the IMAX film Journey to the Planets. After joining the NFB, Munro's film How Dinosaurs Learned to Fly holds the record for the largest theatrical audience of any NFB short. He then went to help the legendary Roman Kroitor at IMAX Corporation with the development of Sandde technology. Munro has since returned to the NFB and has helped trained other NFB animators on this innovative system.

SANDDE™ Stereoscopic

In memory of Canadian artist and filmmaker Joyce June Wieland, 
the film is the Director's attempt to capture his experience of knowing 
Joyce. The two met when Munro was a young child, and Joyce later 
became his friend and art teacher, introducing him to cartooning and 
filmmaking. 
June is a stereoscopic animation, made using SANDDE™, Part 1, 
“Alzheimer's,” is about the end of Joyce's life. Part 2, “Memory,” is 
about what the artist was like during the height of her creative powers.
