27.02.2020 - Jay Clarke, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, moderated by Andrew Amondson
If patience is a virtue, animation filmmakers are particularly worthy of our admiration. Follow two seasoned practitioners as they guide us through the arresting world of stopmotion animation. A cherished collaborator of Wes Anderson, Jay Clarke (Isle of Dogs) awakens us to the power of storyboarding, namely to enable a film crew to see a story before they shoot it. A creator of fable-like creatures, Swedish director Niki Lindroth von Bahr (Something to Remember, Generation 2020) highlights hidden aspects of this timeconsuming yet tender filmmaking technique by sharing excerpts from works in progress and placing her singing snails and other puppets centre stage.
