McLaren Workshop: From catalogue to KILLER App

The NFB recently produced and released the McLaren Workshop app. The app combined the catalogue of innovative animation work by Norman McLaren with the tools to create your own films using McLarens very own techniques. Our panel will focus on how to take innovative catalogue content and rejuvinate it for today's mobile devices as well as release its capabilities to a tapped in audience. Both digital boxset and innovative filmmaking tool, there are ways to make everything new and fresh again.
