Manchester Animation Festival Q & A

Leave a comment

Our latest Q&A took place at the Manchester Animation Festival on the 16th November, followed by a screening of the film. Animation Director Peter Dodd joined Producer Camilla Deakin and Director Roger Mainwood to give a presentation exploring the processes that brought Raymond Briggs’ graphic novel to the screen.

The Q & A was chaired by the festival co-director Steve Henderson. Steve is an animation researcher with the animation academy at Loughborough University and is the editor of Skwigly.com the UK’s largest online animation magazine. Skwigly’s review of Ethel and Ernest is here.
