商品描述

The Ottawa International Animation Festival (OIAF) began in 1976 and stands today as one of the oldest and largest animation events in the world. One of the unique features of the OIAF is the inclusion of commissioned writings that provide attendees with a more in-depth background into the festival's special screenings. These writings have not only contextualized the festival presentations but have also contributed significantly to animation education and scholarship.

The Corners are Glowing is a selection of the best writings (many unseen for decades) culled from past OIAF catalogues. These wide-ranging texts cover the spectrum of animation from the familiar (Daffy Duck, Pee Wee Herman, Bob Clampett, Joanna Quinn, Hiyao Miyazaki, Frank Tashlin) to the more esoteric (Robert Breer, Emily Pelstring, Taku Furukawa, Michael Sporn, and even the use of furniture in animation!).

The Corners are Glowing is a valuable time capsule that celebrates animation's past and present, and the styles of writing are as diverse, enlightening, and fun as the animation subjects being written about.

商品描述(中文翻譯)

渥太華國際動畫節(OIAF)始於1976年,如今是世界上最古老且最大的動畫活動之一。OIAF的獨特之處之一是包含委託撰寫的文章,為參與者提供更深入的背景了解節日的特別放映。這些文章不僅將節日呈現脈絡化,還對動畫教育和學術做出了重要貢獻。

《The Corners are Glowing》是從過去OIAF目錄中精選出的最佳文章(其中許多文章數十年來未曾公開)。這些廣泛的文字涵蓋了從熟悉的(達菲鴨、皮威赫爾曼、鮑勃·克蘭普特、喬安娜·奎恩、宮崎駿、弗蘭克·塔什林)到更深奧的(羅伯特·布里爾、艾米莉·佩爾斯特林、古川拓、邁克爾·斯波恩,甚至是動畫中的家具使用)的動畫領域。

《The Corners are Glowing》是一個珍貴的時光膠囊,慶祝著動畫的過去和現在,而這些文章的風格多樣、啟發人、有趣,與所寫的動畫主題一樣多樣。

Mastering different methods and styles in critical and scholarly approaches, Robinson covers a broad range of Canadian and global subject matters in his books Estonian Animation: Between Genius and Utter Illiteracy, Unsung Heroes of Animation, Canadian Animation: Looking for a Place to Happen, Ballad of a Thin Man: In Search of Ryan Larkin, Animators Unearthed, Japanese Animation: Time out of Mind and Mad Eyed Misfits: Writings on Indie Animation.

In addition to his writing on animation, Robinson also wrote the Award-winning animated short, Lipsett Diaries (2010) directed by Theodore Ushev.

Currently, Robinson is writing two books on animation and is working with German artist, Andreas Hykade on My Balls Are Killing Me, a graphic novel about his experience with cancer. He is also collaborating with Theodore Ushev on a live action feature film, Drivin'.

He has published numerous articles and book chapters on Canadian and international cinema for various international film journals and magazines, and is the author of Atom Egoyan's The Adjuster (University of Toronto Press, 2009) a book-length critical study of Egoyan's 1991 feature film.
