ANIDOX producer, Michelle Kranot, will present some key findings from her on-going research project “Indie Online“: Supported by the Center for Animation, Visualization and Digital Storytelling & Professional Training, at The Animation Workshop / VIA University College. “With a focus on independent animation, our team have looked into how the shift to online and hybrid film festivals has impacted the distribution of independent work and the pathways we take to develop (and finance) new work: I’d like to introduce the topic – and to share some conclusions and personal experiences we have been collecting as part of the research. In this special presentation at ITFS 2021 as part of OnlinePRO, we will highlight the case study of “Just a Guy” directed by Shoko Hara. Shoko Hara and her co-writer Simon Thummet, developed this striking animated documentary with support from ANIDOX:LAB.
