Save Event: Untold Tales

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Seven renowned animators have created a series of micro-shorts, commissioned by Animate Projects and Anim18, as part of the Anim18 programme - a UK-wide celebration of British animation.


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

Each animator brings their distinctive voice and animation style to these bitesize treats. Across the six films pixilation, hand-drawn, digital, stop motion, charcoal, and cut-out animation techniques have been employed. The joy of the craft of animation that these films encapsulate aims to serve as inspiration for the viewer.

Working in collaboration with other creative talents and a range of subjects, the animators reflect on the collective and individual experiences of people living in the UK today. They are playful, joyful, and eye-catching gems, designed to be discovered in the viewer’s Instagram feed, that they will want to share, repost, like, and comment on.

Together the films present an exciting and vibrant collection of stories exploring cultural heritage, historic curiosities, devoted communities, and ways individuals navigate modern life: Leo Crane’s film offers a platform to an adopted child to share his fantastical and hopeful dreams; Ian Gouldstone takes inspiration from the inhabitants of the tower block he resides in; and Osbert Parker and Laurie Hill consider the curious tale of a wasp brought into Victorian society and cultured, and how her treatment reflects on contemporary life today.
