Canadian Film Board Animation Screening  
Tonight I went up to the Walt Disney Family Museum for a screening of Canadian Film Board animation shorts.  I didn't really want to, but I had told my history of animation professor, who was organizing the whole thing, that I wanted to go so I figured I'd better.  When I got to the museum, I found out he never turned in a list of names to the folks at the front desk so he never would have noticed if I had blown the event off.  Oh well.

The guests were Torill Kove, who screened two of her shorts: Me and My Moulton and The Danish Poet.  Her work is biographical and draws on her family history, and the animation style is very basic, but very smooth.  It definitely reminds me of children's tv shows.

Nicola LeMay was also there to talk about two of his animations projects, a story about a deaf kid called Private Eyes and a beautiful segment called No Fish Where to Go which was watercolor animation.  It was beautiful.

They also screened a selection of three or four other shorts, but since the animators weren't there I didn't write the names down and I've already forgotten them.  Oops.
