ANIMATION WORLD MAGAZINE - ISSUE 4.6 - SEPTEMBER 1999
Building A New British Empire
A Tribute to Clare Kitson
Compiled by Annick Teninge
As the Commissioning Editor of Animation for the UK's Channel 4, Clare Kitson has fostered numurous projects and careers, clearly placing the UK on the map as an animation powerhouse. News of her resignation in March moved like wild fire through the animation community, bringing with it tremendous sadness. Animation World Magazine is hosting this forum for the many who wanted to thank Clare for her support and inspiration. Innovative, creative and amazing "her" films have delighted both television viewers and festival goers the world over. Her work with festivals and originating the Animate! Scheme, with the Arts Council, and the Channel 4/MOMI Animators in Residence program are only further proof of her dedication to animation and the artists who create it.
Finally, the varied and large number of tributes gathered here are testament to Clare's achievements: Jan & Eva Svankmajer, Tim Gardam, Nick Park, Marjut Rimminen, Gillian Lacey, Ruth Lingford, Iain Harvey, Raoul Servais, Mike Robinson, Sarah Muller, Karen Brown, Mark Baker, António Gaio, David Curtis, Joanna Quinn & Les Mills, Chris Grace, David Fine and Alison Snowden, Peter Parr, Rod Lord, Pat Raine Webb & Margot Grimwood, Barry Purves, Tiziana Loschi, Ron Diamond, Bob Godfrey, and John Coates.
