All week DEF II is looking at exciting new work and classic examples from the world of animation. "It was twenty years ago today" - well almost! - when Yellow Submarine hit our screens.
This dazzling fantasy feature with the Beatles and their music will be shown in three parts starting tonight. Magenta De Vine and animator Geoff Dunbar get to grips with animation's long flirtation with fantasy and surrealism. He introduces some masterpieces from the past as well as some of his own work: Lautrec and Ubu Roi (Dir. GEOFF DUNBAR), Fantasmagorie (Dir. EMILE COHL), The Mascot
(STAREVITCH), Punch and Judy (SVANKMAJER), Monty Python Animations (TERRY GILLIAM) and Harpya (SERVAIS). Also, the second of the finalists in the First Bite competition for student animators.
