Animations a hit at Sydney International Animation Festival

Jason Japaljarri Woods and David Slowo have just got back from the Sydney International Animation Festival (24-26 September 2010).  My Name is Danny was one of the opening films of the Festival and was warmly received by the Festival participants. The Festival was a great experience for Jason and David being able to not only bring to the participants of the Festival the unique perspectives of desert animation but also being able to view great animations from other indigenous communities.

The Festival also gave a chance for Jason to catch up with Ben Rayner, our first animation trainer for the Animating Jukurrpa project. Thanks Ben for the tour of the Dr D studio.

Jason and David were interviewed by SBS’s Living Black and we hope to see them soon on our screens.

Thanks to Deb Szapiro from UTS for her support and help in PAW Media being involved in the Festival.
