A call for animation filmmakers:
ANIDOX 2017 Summer Residency Workshop
In 1918, Winsor McCay created “The sinking of the Lusitania”, a propaganda film portraying the sinking of an English boat by a German submarine during WW1. Beside being an animation classic, this film is considered to be the first ever made animated documentary.
100 years later, in the age of fake news, a collective of talented animation filmmakers will gather to unearth the truth from deep waters and create a contemporary homage to the film.
