MicroToons 'Scab' Launch Event

  • - (AWST)
  • Medina Hall
    Pace Road, Medina WA 6167, Australia

Come join us for the launch of MicroToons 'Scab' with popcorn, exclusive behind-the-scenes and interactive science fun inclusive for all ages and abilities.

MicroToons is an animated science cartoon on based on a short story written by Dr Rina Fu (Scientist-Author-Artist) and brought to life by artists with autism under the mentorship of Dr Rina and Red Bird Creative producer, Aaron Welch. Harnessing the special talents of our budding artist, Dafa, she will design original story characters (e.g. cells and nasty microbes) from pencil sketches to digital graphics. Sam, Joe, Tyla and Kai, have special interests in story-boarding and demonstrated skills in graphical animation. Applying their talents, they will bring these microscopic characters to life as moving cartoons.

The three minute long new animated story MicroToons 'Scab' will premiere in a launch event hosted by 4LifeSkills. A special showcase of the inaugural MicroToons 'Pimple' (that received eight international awards and screened at over 30 film festivals last year) will also be screened.

The night will be fun filled with Dr Rina and her scientist-team running hands-on activities for science, art and technology for all, including people with physical and intellectual disabilities. The MicroToons Launch will highlight behind-the-scenes adventure, where Dr Rina will share her insights on balancing scientific accuracy and creativity. Sam, Joe, Kai and Tyla will also share their skills and for others to try out using the technologies they employed to create MicroToons.

We hope to see you at the MicroToons launch event.
