CCAD Women in Animation: Part 5

Links and notes from Claire Kitson: 2 PM, 4/14/07

Claire Kitson gave an overview of the history of British Animation. Before this whole conference, I had never realized how different the climate is in Britain for experimental animators.

She talked about and screened some of the following:

Animal Farm (1954) - Directed by John Halas and Joy Batchelor
- This was the first British animated feature to be released worldwide
(clips of the feature can be found in popular video search engines)

Door (1990) - by Russell Hoban and David Anderson

Many Happy Returns (1997) - Marjut Rimminen

A Is for Autism (1992) - Tim Webb
I remember this as being a good film.

Silence (1998) - Orly Yadin & Sylvie Bringas

Feeling My Way (1997) - Jonathan Hodgson

Love Is All (1999) - Oliver Harrison

Alternative Fringe (2005) - Candy Guard
I remember really liking this one, but I don't remember much more.

Bob's Birthday (1993) - Alison Snowden and David Fine
This lead to the animated TV series, Bob and Margaret. This is a great short!

Crapston Villas (1998) - Sarah Ann Kennedy and Peter Boyd Maclean

Are We Still Married (1992) - The Quay Brothers

I think she said that junk food advertising cannot be lawfully aired during children's programming in the UK. Although, I might not have heard completely what she said.

She briefly mentioned something about the CIA putting money into arts, specifically the expressionist movement.

Links I wrote down:
