The next Manifest is just four days away, this Sunday evening the 11th at WORM. A few days ago we met Oana Clitan, one of the people who will be ‘showing and telling’ an animation they love. Next up, animator and editor Rowena Crowe!
Rowena is Australian and has been living in the Netherlands for quite a few years. She has a background in editing and does a fair amount of teaching editing as well. But in 2013 she graduated from the MA of Animation at St Joost in Breda. Her graduation project was a lovely animated short based on found audio recording called If We Were Together, which premiered at the International Film Festival Rotterdam last year. Watch the film in full here:
Rowena also has a nice short Making Of where she shows the rotoscoping process that went into the film:
I see Rowena’s love for cinematic language come across clearly in her own animated work. Just look at those camera angles and shots! I have a sneaking suspicion that her passion for cinema will come across in the animation she chooses to present on Sunday. Intriguing!
Come to find out what she will present: Sunday, Jan 11th, doors open at 20:00, 20:30 start, WORM. Facebook event, Facebook Fan Page, details on the website for you non-Facebookers, and monthly e-newsletter.
