Robert Morgan and Chris Shepherd to appear at Nov 9th Horror Animation class!

Just added: Animators Robert Morgan (BOBBY YEAH) and Chris Shepherd (DAD’S DEAD) will appear at the class in person to discuss their work!

Too little attention has been paid to animated horror and yet animation is uniquely qualified as an art form to fully explore all our fears and anxieties, through visuals crafted by some of the most creative imaginations on the planet. In this illustrated talk, Nag Vladermersky, Director of the London International Animation Festival, will look at the specific forms that horror takes in animation, digging deep into the bowels of the extensive LIAF archive to unearth some of the darkest, weirdest and hellish gems that have screened at the festival over the last 14 years.

Among several short films rarely screened outside of the film festival circuit, he will explore the cruel and casual violence seen in the films of local animators Chris Shepherd (Dad’s Dead) and stop-motion puppet master Robert Morgan (Bobby Yeah) alongside the terrifying visions and otherworldly sinister CG terrains of Dutch animator Rosto (Lonely Bones), the ultra-creepy, bizarre monsters created by Pieter Coudijzer (Beast!) and race issues in the American South circa 1919 as depicted by Einar Baldwin (The Pride of Strathmoor).
