Animating Our Stories | Indigenous Writing and Digital Illustration

Eligibility:

Overview

This program will ignite Indigenous authors and artists focusing on young readers to delve into new ways of storytelling using digital illustration techniques. Through guidance from experienced faculty including recognized Indigenous authors, an illustrator, and a digital animator, participants will learn to lift a story off the page, texturize it, and animate elements of it to life.

Animating Our Stories is a space where storytellers, content producers, and digital media artists will collaborate to fuse modern presentation techniques with the art of storytelling. Participants will explore technology as they learn to illuminate the audience experience of their already vividly imagined stories.

What does the program offer?

Animating our Stories uses storytelling as a form of artistic expression through new technology. The program will develop participants’ ability to learn and expand their storytelling techniques for young audiences. Participants will focus on creating immersive and educational worlds – a key element in storytelling for youth.

The program will offer opportunities to work with editor faculty, and with an illustrator to highlight parts of participants’ stories to focus on for animation. Participants will work with digital media to determine what elements of their stories could be enhanced by animation. 

Who should apply?

Enrolment to this program is for individuals of Indigenous descent (status, non-status, Inuit, and Metis) only. This program is an ideal fit for emerging to established Indigenous writers and illustrators of narrative fiction and/or poetry for young readers. Applicants should be writers in any young reader genre with a strong interest in digital storytelling techniques, although previous experience with digital media is not necessary.

Successful applicants should plan to arrive at the program with a completed work or work in progress to be brought to life through technology.

Dates: May 21 - June 10, 2019

Call for submissions

This is a call for action to all authors to create a short literary piece inspired by an art work.  Any aspiring writer or poet can choose up to five art works from preselected images by Artem Mirolevich and submit up to five individual literary pieces.  The format is up to one written page (500 words maximum) per art work.

You are invited to submit short stories, poems, essays, scripts or any other type of creative writing.  One submission per each art work will be selected by a jury to be published in the Book of Doors.  The book will feature over 50 stories by various authors and over 50 art works by Artem Mirolevich.

Submissions will be judged based on their literary quality and its relevance to the art work. Prizes of $300, $200, $100 will be awarded for the top 3 submissions. Winners will be announced by September 1st.,2018.  All co -authors chosen for the printed format will receive a free copy of the book and a limited edition print of an art work.  All participating authors will be featured in the Book of Doors blog. The aim of the book is promoting creative collaborations between writers and artists.  

 

From the artist:

Literature is one of my primary sources of inspiration. Tolkien, Dante, Tolstoy, Asimov and numerous other writers and poets helped me shape my own vision  as a visual story teller.

My story starts with a protagonist Goggle Man, who travels through time and Space using his goggles.  He visits numerous worlds, makes friends and enemies , learns secrets of the universe and finds his true love. 

The art work selected for the book is divided into five worlds or chapters. Each chapter has a brief introduction, describing what inspired me to create it. You are definitely not obliged to follow it and are encouraged to use your imagination freely. The only condition for successful collaboration is relevance between the visual and verbal components. 

Each chapter represents a milestone in the development of humanity. From the birth of life itself (CH. 1 Tree of Life) to the very first story tellers that created religion and mythology (CH. 2 Elephants), which inevitably led to the development of thriving civilizations from Babylon to New York City (CH 3. Metropolis) to its it’s probable self destruction (CH. 4 Sunken City) and ultimate redemption (CH 5 Cosmic Love). I can’t help but look at the collapse of history’s greatest civilizations and wonder what the future holds for our own. If Rome didn’t make it, what chance do we have? Is there anything that could unite us as a species or is it too late to destroy all the borders we’ve built?

Book of Doors format: 10”x 12” Hard cover, premium paper,museum-quality binding, full color, 160 pages.
