Media Advisory: Summer Stories Animation at Malvern Library
City of Toronto Culture, the Toronto Public Library and the National Film Board (NFB) of Canada will co-host the premiere of the Summer Stories Animation project showcasing original films created by youth. The project allowed youth to learn different animation techniques and experience the filmmaking process by taking their films through pre-production, production and post-production.

Date: Thursday, September 6
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Malvern Branch Library, 30 Sewells Rd., Community Room

As part of the intensive three-day workshop, 25 young people were inspired to tell their own creative stories using the limitless techniques of stop-motion animation. Guided by expert facilitators from NFB Mediatheque, participants aged 10 to 15 worked in five production teams to create an original animated story from start to finish. Participants created their own script, storyboard, backdrops, characters and soundtrack for their animated productions.

Summer Stories Animation is a Malvern Community Youth Arts Project in support of Toronto City Council’s Community Safety Plan - Neighbourhood Action.
