Explore our exhibition of original animation artwork from a selection of Geoff Dunbar’s films and find out about the skills and creative processes behind making them.
Familiar to many through his animated films from Rupert the Bear, The World of Peter Rabbit to Paul McCartney’s music video for The Frog Song, the Barbican presents the work of Geoff Dunbar for the first time.
Made during the golden age of animation, before CGI and digital imagery, discover how each work has been hand–crafted and photographed frame by frame to produce thousands of original drawings for motion effects.
Over the years Geoff has directed many award–winning films including Lautrec, the outrageous UBU ROI and the enchanting Frog Chorus. This exhibition showcases the prodigious talent behind these unforgettable classics.
