LIAF Opening Gala: The Playful Worlds of Will Anderson & Ainslie Henderson (15*)

London International Animation Festival 2018

Scroogin on a greg part of The Playful Worlds of Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson

Come and celebrate the opening of LIAF 2018 with a very special event – an evening with two of the most entertaining and talented young animators working in the UK today.

Insane pigeons, a misguided monkey, the existential crisis of an animated GIF, stifled musicians, the poetry of Robert Burns and fracking are just some of the characters and subjects tackled in the animated worlds of Scotland’s most dynamic double-act: Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson.

Graduates from Edinburgh College of Art’s animation degree course, Will and Ainslie’s worldwide reputation has a bulging awards cabinet as testament to their talent.

LIAF presents a career-spanning retrospective of their inventive, emotional, hilarious and fundamentally entertaining collective of work. 

Will and Ainslie join us onstage to discuss the many facets of their award-winning careers in animation and screen many of their films including a sneak peak of their forthcoming feature Dom.
