Paul Bush 13th September 2016Paul Bush, Emma Calder, Stephanie Griffiths, Rosemary Norman and Stuart Pound
Paul studied art at Goldsmiths and made experimental films for many years before turning to single frame work in the early nineties. Since then he has received world-wide recognition for a number of films including stop frame animation of objects (Furniture Poetry) and people (Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) which have influenced a generation of animators. He has combined film-making with commercial projects and teaching, at the National Film School for many years and also at Luzern University, Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Turin and Harvard in the US.Paul used this opportunity to talk about his creative process and about the practicalities of getting a film into production. Taking his most recent film ‘The Five Minute Museum’ as an example, more than ten years between conception and completion, he talked about his latest work in progress, ‘Laughter and Forgetting’, at Arts Council funding for animation, European co-productions and no-budget film-making.
