ANIMATION BRINGS NEW LIFE TO LIVE PRODUCTION AT SYDNEY FRINGE FESTIVAL

20 Sep 2018

In an innovative and interesting collaboration, SAE Bachelor students have been developing animations that will be integrated into the stage production MUSICAL ISLAND: A Silent Spell. The pantomime has been produced for the upcoming Sydney Fringe Festival and the student animations will be shown as part of the narrative alongside the live action actors.

27 Bachelor of Animation students have been working closely with the show's director Natalie Mitzikis to create a children’s theatre experience like no other. An original musical production, Natalie says MUSICAL ISLAND: A Silent Spell aims to bring smiles and magic melodies to miniature maestros, kidults and the young at heart alike.

Supervising lecturer Simon Alberry says the experience is an exciting one for the students to have while still studying. “Working to a brief, and not on your own self directed project is a good lesson to learn, especially if you intend to go into freelancing. This project also demonstrates the unusual applications of animation, combining live theatre and animation is something we don’t always see in our industry.”

SAE student Brandon Hon says working on the project has been an insightful opportunity, “making sure we produced something that the client would like was definitely something we had to keep in mind and the Director loved most of our ideas. I believe this has been an invaluable experience for both improving as an artist, and as a person.”

The student’s Animations will be shown live with MUSICAL ISLAND: A Silent Spell in five live shows across two locations at Sydney Fringe Festival.
