Equality in focus today with landmark decision from US Supreme Court. Big change often arrives after a long journey of very small, very slow steps... but its refreshing to reach milestones. The more inclusive we can be, the more we all learn and appreciate about each other.
In that light, I'm sharing here a link to a post on the Animation World Network website. It highlights a series of animation shorts created to recognize these female animation pioneers: http://www.awn.com/news/gobelins-shorts-pay-tribute-pioneering-women-animators
These shorts were created by students at the Gobelins (art) school in France http://www.gobelins.fr/en/gobelins
for the 2015 Annecy International Animated Film Festival.http://www.annecy.org/home
Here are photos of the artists featured .. along with an image from the short film about them.. I've also included links for more biographical info on these artists.
Alison De Vere
Evelyn "Eve" Lambert
and Charlotte (Lotte) Reiniger
Take a look at at these shorts to see how today's animators created tributes to leaders in their field. Talent is not defined by gender....
