Animation Celebration

Our Animation Celebration presentations are a chance for kids (ages 8-12) to get an inside look at the art of animation. The hour-long presentation includes a screening and a talk from an animation industry professional.

Presentations take place at Ottawa Art Gallery on Wednesday, September 25

Eva Cvijanovic’s presentation on the making of her latest film, Hedgehog’s Home gives the young audience a peak into what went into making this exquisite needle-felted film. From developing the idea based on a children’s poem, to building puppets, sets and exploring different facets of stop-motion animation, prepare to dive into a lush forest world made of wool.
P.S. the furry actors might be in attendance

Cette présentation de la cinéaste Eva Cvijanovic donne un aperçu de la fabrication de son dernier film La Maison du Hérisson. Du développement de l’histoire à partir d’un livre pour enfants à la construction des marionnettes et la mise-en-scène feutrée, joignez-nous pour un voyage à travers le monde de la forêt enchantée et mystérieuse que notre hérisson habite.
P.S. présence possible des acteurs poilus
