Graphic Festival: Meet the Myth Makers of the Modern World (10-11 Nov 2012)
Geek of Oz were privileged to attend a preview of this year’s upcoming Graphic festival – a highly anticipated weekend of graphic storytelling, animation, music and gaming to be held at the Sydney Opera House on November 10th and 11th. Graphic festival showcases and celebrates innovative and creative new forms of story-telling, and although only in its third year, has already racked up some fairly impressive feathers in its cap, having featured the likes of Gotye, Neil Gaiman and Regurgitator in previous years.
This year’s lineup is no less impressive. The highlights include: Pixar: Behind-the-Screens, hosted by Lee Unkrich, director of Toy Story 3, who will allow audiences a rare glimpse into the animation masters’ workshop; an illustrated musical collaboration between celebrated New Zealand soul outfit Fat Freddy’s Drop and street artist Otis Frizzell; a design-your-own-game workshop with Qantm College; an exciting homage to Dr Seuss’s work, put to the music of over 25 onstage performers; and a presentation by some of the creative minds behind Sydney’s own Animal Logic animation studio.
