Women in Animation is holding a symposium at Annecy as part of its continuing efforts to create a 50/50 gender balance in creative leadership roles by 2025.
Director Claude Barras talks about the hard work of achieving simplicity, the keys to making kid characters in animation feel authentic, and why he believes stop motion is the midpoint between fiction and animation.
It’s turning out to be quite the week for “My Life As A Zucchini.”
Animation is doing well everywhere this year, including the foreign-language category of the Oscars.
Claude Barras’ breakout animation debut “My Life As a Courgette” will represent Switzerland at the Academy Awards.
