Juan Pablo Libossart and Klara Grunning – moderators from Svenska Filminstitutet
In this session, we meet filmmakers who will share and discuss the creative processes and power of working with animated documentary, through three case studies (FLEE, CRAIG and THE NIGHT). The goal is to obtain a deeper insight into how to discover, realise and create images through animation when they have been lost, and how, through new artistic expression and visual voice, we can take ownership of memories and past human experiences. This conversation will also touch on the challenges of financing, presenting and producing animated documentaries.

Nordisk Panorama 17th September 2016

Event link: Nordisk Panorama ANIDOX:MASTERCLASS – Animating real life

The Animation Workshop’s ANIDOX programme lead by Michelle and Uri Kranot is a unique opportunity to produce, develop projects and share knowledge about animated documentaries.
In 2014 celebrated documentarian Erik Gandini contacted Michelle and Uri to collaborate on the film COSMOPOLITANISM. In this case study of  COSMOPOLITANISM, Uri and Erik will demonstrate the strengths and challenges of creating an animated documentary, the fruit of a collaborative creative process. Coming from very different schools of filmmaking, they will show how they managed to weave together a project based on those two approaches.
The session will be moderated by Producer Klara Grunning Harris of the Swedish film institute and will be followed by an opportunity to ask questions and discuss projects with the filmmakers and the ANIDOX team.
