Elizabeth Hobbs is a visual artist with a background in printmaking and artist’s books. For the last 12 years she has been making technically challenging and absorbing animated films, often with a historical context. Stories about Napoleon Bonaparte, the witch trials of King James VI and cannibal Sawney Beane are visualised in a whimsical and capricious style. She has won many awards throughout her career, including the prestigious Mclaren Award For Best New British Animation at Edinburgh International Film Festival. More recent commissions have included 4 films as part of the KT Tunstall documentary ‘How To Make A Tiger Suit’.

Elizabeth teaches animation at Anglia Ruskin University. A part of her practice is creating animation with young people and running workshops in museums and galleries. West Side Cinema is delighted to be hosting ‘Flipbook Challenge’, a free workshop where Elizabeth will teach the fundamental elements to create flipbook style moving images. These short animations will then be edited together to be screened as part of the evening show ‘Animated Tales’.

Elizabeth said ”I’m really looking forward to coming to Stromness to show my films and meeting, and even making, some new animators, of any age!’

Later that evening……….
