The latest SYNC event for filmmakers at the Continental will take place this evening, for an 8:30 start.
Rob Birchall will show a selection of his animation work, from clips he’s done for films to commercial companies, along with book series Get Ahead Fred, to the work he did in the Scan & Paint department for Oscar nominated The Illusionist. He’ll talk about his creative travels through the work he does, and where he’s at now.
Fiona Collins screens her internationally film festival distributed short documentaries Not Sacks, Rebuilding Broken Lives, & Match Day, and talks about making the most of competition opportunities, and how research is never wasted.
The Watcher – short film, part of a trilogy based in Salford – presented by writer / director Joe O’Byrne & producer Chris Lane – they’ll talk through the different aspects of making it happen and getting it seen.
The evening will finish with some time to chat: where SYNC organisers promise to get into the nuts, bolts, mechanics, and the fleshy outer bits of creating media arts. And drink some beers, of course!
