BREATH OF LIFE ANIMATION FESTIVAL
In 2008, I founded the Breath of Life Animation Festival, a free one-day event for children, held annually for 4 years at Cedar Park Church in Delta, BC. The festival's mission was to celebrate the art of animation through screenings, workshops, fun and fellowship for the community.
Here is a video sneak-peek at the 2011 festival:
Through a series of rotating half-hour workshops, kids explored techniques such as pixilation, clay animation, flipbooks, and cartoon drawing, followed by a screening of classic animated short films and the reward of seeing their own animated efforts from the day on the big screen! Snack stations, animation demos, 16mm cartoon projections and free trade arts & crafts sold by Ten Thousand Villages round out the afternoon for an exciting event.
