Animation is at the heart of our institution and we are very proud of our heritage. Our graduates have excelled in all sectors of the creative economy with their greatest contributions in the production of industrial and independent animated films.
As a tribute to them, and in the spirit of the National Film Board of Canada animator Norman McLaren’s centenary, we named the 2014 SAS Conference “The Animator”.
The Animator conference will present academic and industry panels that address animation from a diverse set of lenses, disciplines, and communities of practice. We invite scholars, researchers, and practitioners to attend the conference and engage in dynamic animated discussions with over 120 presenters.
Our hope is that the conference will inspire collaboration initiatives between scholars and practitioners – traditional narrative and non-narrative productions, emergent animation research, and multidisciplinary projects and activities.
