Joanna Quinn’s Favourite Animated Films

Joanna Quinn’s Favourite Animated Films

17 Nov 2009 General

I love Joanna Quinn. From the feminist rap of Beryl to the Colonial rant of Britannia, I think that she is a a fantastic animator, and a fantastic film maker.

Joanna Quinn Exhibition

At Bradford, not only did they have an entire exhibition dedicated to her work, but she was also on the jury, allowed herself to be bombarded by student portfolios at ‘Speed date the animators’ and curated a screening of her favourite films.

Now personally I don’t think that they were her favourite films. I think that she liked them, but I think that perhaps she used the opportunity to provide an education on important films that students should see. The list read practically as Animation 101, so I felt that I should pass on this list (with links where possible) as homework for any aspiring animators out there.

2 Sisters – Caroline Leaf

An incredible film, scratched directly on to 70mm film

Hill Farm – Mark Baker
Funny and poignant, try to find a better quality version than this

Your Face – Bill Plympton
Hilarious. The man is one hell of a caricaturist!

Who I Am and What I Want – David Shrigley / Chris Shepard
Psychopathic, but in the best way possible

Alternative Fringe – Candy Guard
Candy perfectly encapsulates the female experience

Flux – Christopher Hinton
Just plain manic

So there you go animation lovers, that’s Joanna Quinn’s list of her favourite films, a veritable treasure trove of delights!
