12.30pm - 1.45 pm - Royal College of the Arts - 25 Years of Animation
London's Royal College of Art animation department has been doing what they do best for 25 years - where does the time go?! For all of those twenty five years RCA films have been screening just about everywhere and we decided it was time to do a stock-take on the hundreds of films that have been created within those hallowed halls. But where to begin? In true SIAF style we went straight to the top - that would be Joan Ashworth, Professor and Head of Animation at RCA and we were gifted a collection of RCA's 'best' 100 films. This is now one of our most treasured possessions and the temptation was to leave immediately before they changed their minds and asked for them back. From that staggering collection of animated wonderfulness comes this tribute to 25 years of outstanding animation craft. It took a couple of months to get through all of that material and in the way these things often work out at SIAF, the whole deal was nailed down over a roast chook in Estonia ... but that's another story.
