Untold Tales: Going Behind The Scenes

  • LUX Moving Image Waterlow Park Centre London N19 5JF (map)

In Autumn 2018 Animate Projects and Anim18 commissioned Figuration to make one of six micro-animations as part of Untold Tales. Together the animations present an exciting and vibrant collection of stories exploring cultural heritage, historic curiosities, devoted communities, and ways that individuals navigate modern life. They also demonstrate a range of animation techniques - pixilation, hand drawn, digital, stop motion, charcoal, and cut-out animation – and have involved composers, artists, sound designers, editors, and the voices of real people in their production.

In this event Figuration Director Leo Crane joins the other makers to talk about the processes, techniques, and the stories that inspired their commissions, as well as an insight into how this work fits within their artistic practice more broadly.

The commissioned artists are: Jessica Ashman, Leo Crane, Ian Gouldstone, Anushka Kishani Naanayakkara, Osbert Parker & Laurie Hill, and Kate Sullivan.
