The Making of Longbird

Year
2011
Country
Scotland
Duration
16’
Director
Will Anderson
A ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at an animator/filmmaker as he struggles with his character. Inspired by animation pioneer Vladislav Feltov's 1911 Russian classic «Длинная птица» (translation: Long Bird), a budding animator/filmmaker attempts to make its mysteriously long character relevant in the modern world. ‘The Making of Longbird’ is something of a re-imagining: a moving portrayal of a bird who laments his ‘iconic’ master; a humorous account of his contemporary comeback with Anderson. The film is an amalgamation of 'fact' and 'fiction' between animator and animation.
