Robert Valley will present several works, explaining how to adapt graphic novels into animation.

Graduated from the Emily Carr College in Vancouver, Robert Valley is in high demand as a director, graphic artist, designer and animator. His vast array of work includes music videos for Gorillaz, the "Massive Swerve" graphic novel series, Annie Awards and "Pear Cider and Cigarettes", his Oscar-nominated short film.

Robert will demonstrate some of the key steps in going from graphic novel to animation, taking examples from "Pear Cider and Cigarettes" and he will also present the Gorillaz music video he made in collaboration with Jamie Hewlett. This will give audience members the chance to see how his animation style has developed over the years and better understand his vision as a director.
