EXCLUSIVE: Beryl’s Back! Joanna Quinn animates BAF 2013 ident

// News


Beryl, the star synonymous with acclaimed animator Joanna Quinn is back in her first animated adventure for 7 years. Beryl’s last outing Dreams and Desires – Family Ties was released 2006, but now she returns to celebrate the Bradford Animation Festivals 20th anniversary in the form of the festival ident. Joanna Quinn is a long time friend of BAF, last directly involved with the festival in 2009 with her celebrated exhibition, ‘Drawings that move’ displayed at the Bradford Media Museum before going onto Valencia, Spain and the Czech Republic.

Beryl’s latest stint might be brief, but the quality is no small cookie. With her usual larger-than-life personality, Beryl whisks up a storm; throwing many an animated character into the mix, including festival favourites – Cowboy (Phil Mulloy), Wallace & Gromit (Nick Park), Roobarb (Bob Godfrey), Yeti & Willy (Emma De Swaef & Marc Roels), Tram Conductor (Michaela Pavlatova) and Snowman & Snowdog (Raymond Briggs & Hilary Audus).

A perfectly delightful introduction to the animation festivities and a triumphant return of Beryl, serving up the amazing 2D medium on a delicious platter.

Bradford Animation Festival is happening all week, between the 12th and the 16th of November 2013.
