Blood Quantum @ TIFF
We will be at the Toronto International Film Festival 2019 edition, for both the industry conference and to attend the opening night screening of Jeff Barnaby's zombie apocalypse "Blood Quantum" (Prospector Films). The e→d team worked tirelessly on the animated segments for this live action feature and we are beyond excited to have such a terrifyingly fun excuse to attend our first TIFF!
Hairy Hill WIP at Stop Motion Montreal!
We are quite obsessed with stop motion animation at e→d films. Our Art + Tech Director Dan's animated short in production "Hairy Hill" is a perfect example of how we use this technique to drive our aesthetic and technical processes. Dan will be combining game engine puppeteering and traditional keyframe animation to bring the the main character Ethel and her family to life. Come see his work-in-progress presentation Saturday September 21 at 3 PM at Concordia University.
Ottawa International Animation Festival 2019
Not only will we be professionally partying at the OIAF this year, we will be hosting a late night party as well! If you are at the fest, drop in to our Salon des Refuses at 11 PM in the SAW Gallery on Thursday September 26th for some casual mixing and mingling with animation students, filmmakers, professionals. . . and us!
A Fantasia Award for Giant Bear
The animated short we co-produced with Taqqut Productions, Giant Bear, has been tirelessly touring the international festival scene since its World Premiere at GLAS Festival earlier this year. Our most special mention yet came from Montreal's acclaimed Fantasia Festival, where it was given a SATOSHI KON AWARD for Achievement in Animation. It is an honour to receive a prize named after a world renowned craftsman and storyteller.
The whole team, including the film's amazing vocalist Beatrice Deer, was there to see Giant Bear on the big screen in all its fully monstrous force!
