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.
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.
