The Making of 9

Find out how the unique animated film 9 was made, in nine easy-to-follow-steps. Toronto based ‘Starz Animation’ worked for an intense eighteen months to realize Shane Acker’s vision. 9 is a large, rich and technically complicated action-packed movie that pushes the creative expectations of the animated movie. Produced on a tight schedule and tighter budget, making 9 was a unique experience.

Speakers:
Kevin Adams, Art Director , Starz Animation

NFB SHINES WITH NINE FILMS AT THE

OTTAWA INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FESTIVAL

LINE-UP INCLUDES THREE FILMS IN COMPETITION, NEW WORK FROM AN OSCAR WINNER AND AN OSCAR NOMINEE

Montreal, October 1, 2009 – As one of the world’s leading creators of auteur animation,  the National Film Board of Canada has close ties to the world-renowned Ottawa International Animation Festival. A long-time partner of the OIAF, the NFB will present nine new shorts at the event’s 33rd edition (October 14–18, 2009), three of them in competition. The line-up displays a variety of inventive techniques and powerful themes, continuing the NFB tradition of innovation and excellence in animation art. On top of the festival’s official selection of new productions, the OIAF has curated a special Rarities Program of seldom seen NFB classics to celebrate its 70th. anniversary. The NFB will also present the Public Prize.

Among other themes, NFB films selected for this year’s OIAF probe lost and regained love (Oscar winner Chris Landreth’s The Spine) and the perverse human drive toward chaos (Oscar nominee Cordell Barker’s Runaway). With classics such as Neighbours (1952) and stunning recent films such as Madame Tutli-Putli (2008), the NFB has shown that animation shorts pack considerable expressive power into their brief running times. NFB films, deploying techniques ranging from traditional hand-made animation to adventurous digital innovation, provoke strong emotions and thoughtful discussion with their eye-opening, witty and sometimes very funny explorations of life on earth.
