One Frame at a Time

Animation in the United States today is anything but homogenous. At this very moment, there are hundreds of animators sitting in their studios or basements pounding out frames every night and creating a rich body of work with no mainstream venue in which to show it. On the other side of the spectrum, there are countless artists working in creative fields within larger animation operations like Pixar, Warner Brothers, Disney, and ILM. In a panel moderated by Tom Knott, animators talk about the creative process, how they do what they do, why we don’t often see it, and how animation artists fare in the more commercial endeavors.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
