Film an­i­ma­tor ends res­i­dency

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

To­day marks the end of John Cane­maker’s two-week res­i­dency at the Na­tional Film School (NFS) in Dún Laoghaire. Cane­maker, pro­fes­sor of an­i­ma­tion at New York Uni­ver­sity, won an Os­car in 2006 for his touch­ing, in­no­va­tive film The Moon and the Son: An Imag­ined Con­ver­sa­tion. He has also writ­ten some of the key aca­demic works on the medium, in­clud­ing the stan­dard text on Dis­ney.

Apart from his daily mas­ter­classes, to which other colleges were in­vited, there were open events for in­dus­try: an NFS Lec­ture on cam­pus; screen­ings at the IFI; and an An­i­ma­tion Ire­land evening at the Light House. Cane­maker, whose visit was spon­sored by the Ir­ish Film Board and the Academy of Mo­tion Pic­ture Arts and Sciences, was the first vis­it­ing fel­low at the school.
