Featuring Matthew Luhn (Story Supervisor), Andrew Gordon (Directing Animator) from PIXAR and Bobette Buster (Script Consultant to Pixar, Sony and Disney), this three day master class is for everyone passionate about the art and craft of storytelling through animation. With a unique and comprehensive program of lectures, practical workshops, deconstructions and exercises, participants will discover the creative processes behind the most enduring and iconic animation masterpieces of all time and have a chance to develop work under their guidance.

Most would agree that Pixar represents the holy grail in storytelling and animation. Between them Matthew Luhn and Andrew Gordon have worked on Pixar classics including their very first CG movie released in 1995, Toy Story, as well as Toy Story 2 & 3, A Bugs Life, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc & Monsters University, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E and Up.

Joining them for the first time in Australia is Bobette Buster, a Hollywood writer/producer and leading story consultant to Pixar, Disney Animation and Sony Animation who will present a 1 x day class deconstructing the masters of animation that will leave you moved and inspired.


With evening sessions jam-packed with local talent including talks from leading experts across a range of expertise including Peter Viska (Viskatoons), Malcolm Turner (Melbourne International Animation Festival), Isabel Peppard (Butterflies), Christy Dena (Authentic in all Caps), Morgan Jaffit (Defiant Development) and Mark Gravas (Kapow Pictures), and Toons After Dark - Adult Animation in Australia, Finding Animation will be a feast for the eyes, minds and souls of anyone involved in animation - from students to working professionals.
