For its premiere Meet the Masters online session, VIEW Conference is proud to present Academy Award nominee Nora Twomey, partner and creative director of Cartoon Saloon, in conversation with director Kris Pearn. Nora Twomey directed “The Breadwinner,” co-directed “The Secret of Kells,” and was head of story for “Song of the Sea,” all of which received Best Animated Feature Film Oscar nominations and many international awards. She produced Cartoon Saloon’s current feature “Wolfwalkers” for Apple and is directing a new feature “My Father’s Dragon” for Netflix. After co-founding Cartoon Saloon in Kilkenny, Ireland in 1999, Twomey directed and animated her first short film there in 2002, went on to direct several award-winning short films, and now has 11 short and animated film credits as animator, director, head of story, producer, and voice actor. In addition, she guided the development processes on the television series "Puffin Rock" and is co-creator of the current series "Dorg Van Dango." In 2018, the VIEW Conference honored Nora Twomey with its Visionary Award.
Kris Pearn directed this year’s highly acclaimed "The Willoughbys" for Netflix. He also directed "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2" for Sony Pictures Animation as well as storyboarding on their animated features including “Home,” “Hotel Transylvania,” and “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.”
“Kris and Nora both direct animated features, but Kris’s delightful CG films and Nora’s beautiful hand-drawn animated films are so different,” says VIEW Conference director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “I’m eager to hear Kris engage Nora in conversation about her approach to developing and directing an animated feature.”
VIEW Conference thanks our sponsors Fondazione Compagnia di San Paolo, Fondazione CRT, Regione Piemonte, Città di Torino and OGR. This event is organized by VIEW Conference in partnership with OGR and Cartoon Saloon.
