Persistence of Vision Canada, 2012, 83 minutes Director: Kevin Schreck
A tale of creative genius gone horribly awry, this is the untold story of the greatest animated film never made. Visionary animator Richard Williams (Oscar-winning animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) toiled for more than three decades on his masterpiece, only to have it torn from his hands. Kevin Schreck has woven together mind-blowing animation, rare archival footage, and interviews with animators who worked with Williams on his ill-fated magnum opus to bring this epic, forgotten chapter of cinema history to the screen for the very first time.
Irish Folk Furniture Ireland, 2013, 8 minutes Director: Tony Donoghue
In rural Ireland old hand-painted furniture is often associated with hard times, with poverty and with a time many would rather forget. In the making of this film 16 pieces of abandoned folk furniture were restored and returned back into daily use and are brought to life with whimsical stop motion animation.
