As part of this years London International Animation Festival Mew Lab directors Shaun Clark & Kim Noce will be presenting a special talk about their new film “The Key”. The presentation is part of the LIAF Industry Events and will take place at London’s Barbican Centre 1st November.
Taken from the LIAF industry event page here is a little about the presentation. “Shaun Clark and Kim Noce are Mew Lab, an award winning London based animation collective with a bold style of narrative filmmaking ranging from animated documentaries, horror films to children’s television and short film. Their work has won a number of awards and has screened on UK and US television. Both Directors have BAFTA nominations, and are recognized as exciting emergent talent. The Key is their latest film. Taking almost 2 years to complete, the work included preparing, printing and coloring 5753 pictures to create the animation with the participation of 500 residents of Watford aged 2 to 90, who created 2000 frames needed to make the animated film.
The film is now starting its life on the film festival circuit and has already travelled to Australia, Italy, Bulgaria, Greece, Mexico and Cyprus.” “The Key” will also be screened at the festival in the International Competition Programme 3: Being Human (15) on the 26th October.
The London International Animation Festival proudly showcases the whole spectrum of creative animation, showing that animation is for everyone. Founded in 2003, LIAF aims to dispel the popular misconception that animation is just cartoons for kids by screening the broadest possible range of intelligent, entertaining and provocative current films on offer from all around the world as well as retrospectives and specialised sessions from countries and animators who don’t normally elicit such attention. The LIAF annual 10-day Festival includes gala premieres, retrospectives, Q&A’s with filmmakers, workshops, audience voting, and the Best of the Festival screening. Since this year LIAF has become much more than an annual Festival – the LIAF team are programming more events, tours, screenings and master classes all year-round to as many cities and countries as possible.
