Talk at Libre Graphics Meeting on 2 May 2015 in Toronto

The Libre Graphics Meeting's program has recently been confirmed. Our talk titled "Project of a 2D Libre Movie: ZeMarmot" will happen on May 2, at the University of Toronto.

The talk details are:

Studio Girin will present a 2D short animation project in progress (working title “ZeMarmot”), which is going to raise funds through crowdfunding. The animation film will be produced entirely with Free Software, and will be ultimately released under a Libre license. Synopsis summary: « A Marmot lives a quiet life in Alps mountains. His main activities? Sleep, eat and sleep again. When a migrating bird tells him of the world's wonders, beyond the mountains, the rodents goes for an impromptu world tour. What will happen? Will the Marmot ever come back? »

Aryeom is a young South Korean independant animation film director and animation artists. Her first co-directed short animation, “Grandma Ocean” got screened in more than a dozen festivals and won 2 prices. She is now an artist in residency in the association LILA in Paris, and is trying to create her own animation studio, Studio Girin. Also she is an awesome user of GIMP. Jehan has been an actor as a young kid for a dozen of years, especially for movie dubbings, and also won an “Outstanding Youth Actor in a Foreign Film” award. Nowadays he spends time as a software developer (among others for GIMP…), and he spent a few years traveling the world alone on a motorcycle (in particular from France to Japan), then he traveled with Aryeom. Their travels are inspirational of ZeMarmot's story.

If you happen to be in Toronto that day, come and see us! :-)
