Chris Shepherd is London International Animation Festivals Special Opening Night Guest
Legendary animator and director Chris Shepherd makes a special appearance on the opening night of the London International Animation Festival. The occasion will see the world premier of Shepherd’s eagerly anticipated film Johnno’s Dead and he will take the stage with members of the cast and crew to discuss its making. The live-action/animation hybrid short has been several years in the making and is the sequel to the multi award winning Dad’s Dead.
Shepherd’s work is hilarious and ink-dark in equal measure and his use of live action mixed with a wide range of animation styles means that his execution is invariably as compelling as his deeply unsettling narratives.
