AN EVENING WITH JOHN CANEMAKER//
The Moon and the Son: An imagined Conversation//
NOVEMBER 12 (6.30)
Animation historian, educator and Oscar-winning filmmaker John Canemaker will answer questions following the screening of two of his films. Professor Canemaker, whose numerous books on Disney history are essential reference material, is Chair of New York University's Animation Programme. He is also the first National Film School Visiting Fellow at IADT, Dún Laoghaire. The Fellowship is supported by Bord Scannán na hÉireann/The Irish Film Board and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Visiting Artists programme.
The Moon and the Son: An imagined Conversation won the Academy Award for Best Short Film (Animated). This autobiographical work explores the difficult emotional terrain of father-son relationships as seen through Canemaker's own turbulent relationship with his father. It features the voices of Eli Wallach and John Turturro.

In Chuck Jones: Memories of Childhood, which was produced by Canemaker, an 84-year-old Jones talks about his life, particularly his childhood, his going to art school and studying the human body, his success as a Hollywood animator, and old age. As Jones talks, we see clips from his work and watch him draw. Simple animation illustrates parts of his story.

Here's the release from Adrian:
After the success of our extreme location filmmaking event last July, and bouncing around ideas for the next one, we came across the magical world of music, and saw the creation of it with fresh eyes. Discovering and contacting the Danish game & film music composerThomas Regin, we are excited to bring him to Dublin, and hear firsthand how he has succeeded in the world of composing music.
All films need music and all games need music... so what we want to do is bring the worlds together for a brief afternoon :)
There are 3 parts to the event:
- 1. Get inspiration from Thomas (he is really passionate about what he is doing)
- 2. Get inspiration from each other - by people volunteering to showcase some music/short film clips/game - in development or finished - (5-10 minutes each)
- 3. Share ideas & create new connections with cool, like minded people in a fun way (we make sure you get to meet lots of people) so you can collaborate, or create projects together, or simply bounce ideas.
So far we have volunteers with Japanese music, game development, animated films, and invites are still open for more people to show their own work, be it in film, music or gaming, in process or completed, for feedback and sharing, so that we can all discover more.
If you are interested, drop us a line at email@example.com, and get free tickets for you and a friend.
