Youth Workshop @ Lunenburg Doc Fest 2016
For this year’s Lunenburg Doc Fest the youth workshop “Telling It Like It Is” had participants create films using the tools and techniques of stop motion animation. Characters and props were built with modelling clay and sets created against multimedia and painted backgrounds.
In “A Street Interview” the immortal “Tom” described what it was like confronting near death and extraordinary experiences. “A Street Interview” was the creation of a team of artists and filmakers: Griffin Bjerke-Clarke, Yari Msika, Arrow Herbert, Tegan McMahon, Milo Paris and Gray Star.
Oliver Pickering and Max Gros documented the plight of industrial farm chickens in “Chickens Before Money”. A couple of chickens and a rooster were interviewed and described the conditions they were raised in.
In “Ghosts of Lunenburg” by Sophia Gros and Tessa Ferguson, some local ghosts were interviewed giving insights to the habits and doings of these spirits.
The workshop was facilitated by Ada Denil, independent artist and animator; and Ronnie Scullion, director of Artech.
