If you’re in Toronto, and you want to hang with the animation crowd, tonight’s a great night to do it. Animatic TO’s latest edition is an evening with award-winning independent film maker Carla Veldman.
From the event page:
Carla Veldman is a Toronto based animation filmmaker and stop-motion artist. A graduate of Sheridan College’s Animation program She first entered the scene with her award winning stop-motion film “The Scarf”(2010). Since then she has worked on a variety of projects but has always kept her main focus on telling her own stories. When she’s not in the role of director, animator, editor, compositor, and every other position she has to undertake when developing her films, Carla is also tasked with having to find the funding for her projects. It’s not an easy task and requires a lot of pre-planning and research.
This talk is geared towards anyone who has a story they’re trying to tell but don’t know how to approach getting it made. If you’d like to hear about how Carla get’s her projects off the ground, how she gets funding, how she manages her time and what is necessary when starting off down this path, then this would be a very insightful talk to sit in on.
There will also be a variety of clips she will be showing of how she actually goes about creating her films. A variety of process work that comes from the pre production side to the “in production” side.
$10 at the door. Doors open at 7:00pm Lecture starts at 7:30pm
The event takes place at the Bento Miso Collaborative Workspace, 862 Richmond Street West, Toronto.
