NUA Chair of Animation animates for Oxford ReLit summer school
The Oxford ReLit Summer School is an intensive exploration of the power and therapeutic value of literature and the other arts. The theme for 2017 is ‘The Writer, the Artist & their Notebook’. This year filmmaker Professor Suzie Hanna has been animating the drawings of English poet Stevie Smith, with particular reference to her character stereotypes and the way that male and female aspirations and relationships are explored. Susie will deliver a session at the Oxford Relit Summer School on connecting the poet’s textual and illustrative vision, and will include a hands-on character development workshop. Professor Suzie Hanna is Chair of Animation Education at Norwich University of the Arts and Chair of the National Association for Higher Education in the Moving Image (NAHEMI).
