CSULB Animation Professor Aubry Mintz will be on the Turner Classic Movie network to showcase a festival of Rare Animation on Sunday, April 9th from 5-9pm. Alongside host Ben Mankiewicz, Prof. Mintz and Ms. Ellen Besen will be guest presenters of National Film Board of Canada’s Animation films from the forties until the end of the nineties. “Norman MacLaren, Caroline Leaf and Richard Condie are just a few of the animators who’s greatest works will screened. Over the course of the last year, Aubry and Ellen viewed and researched many titles from the NFB archives to create this 4 hour package which includes the work of more than 30 directors working in a variety of techniques.” As Professor Mintz says, “In our research we found wonderful backstage stories for many of our films, more than could be covered in the interview sections of the evening itself… [but] Viewers can take advantage of this additional material – production anecdotes, thoughts on content, notes on historical context – we will be posting some of our favorite bits over the next few weeks on our Facebook page.” Please tune in and enjoy!
