Animation allows its creators an enormous amount of control over the process of filmmaking; the independent animation filmmaker is in charge of every frame produced. He or she sets the pace of the film, decides what the characters will look like, choses the colours of the sets, imagines transitions between scenes and often reinvents an animation technique to create a unique world. Animators are gods – they create their own universes! But what about storytelling?

A Talk by Marc Bertrand, Producer, Animation and Youth Studio, National Film Board of Canada, a producer at the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) since 1998, will present clips of award-winning animated films to elucidate the secrets of storytelling in short animation. Time and again, film projects initiated by the NFB impressively reflect the country's cultural diversity and produce stories that can only be told through animation. Find out why animation may just be the best storytelling medium of all!

A work of art has to have cohesiveness and consistency; but not so much cohesiveness and consistency as to become boring and not so much non-cohesiveness as to fall apart. It has to be organically linked and yet it must have surprises in it that you don't expect; but surprises that are relevant to the whole work. – Norman McLaren
