From shop class to the head of the class in animation
The National Film Board of Canada's helped celebrate International Animation Day by making 5 new animated films available for free online. The NFB has long had a sterling reputation at home and abroad for making some of the best animated films anywhere and this new batch of 5 films includes one from Edmonton-born creator, Hart Snider. It's called "Shop Class" and it was inspired by his school days at Parkview Junior High. Russell Bowers caught up with the animator via Skype.
