Lightbox: Luc Chamberland – “Seth’s Dominion”

// Featured, Interviews


In the latest episode of Lightbox Skwigly talks to Director Luc Chamberland, whose wealth of industry experience spans shorts, feature films and, more recently, animated documentaries. Following his 2004 Animation Workshop short Mr. Rivet and 2011’s Saga City for the NFB, Chamberland recently finished the long-in-the-making feature documentary Seth’s Dominion, an exploration of the life and work of Canadian comic artist Seth. Eschewing the typical approach to documentary filmmaking, Chamberland has endeavoured to create an altogether more immersive and engaging profile of the subject, combining live-action footage with animated interpretations of Seth’s work, perfectly retaining the artist’s 1930s-informed style. The film won for Best Feature at last year’s Ottawa International Animation Festival and will be featured this coming weekend at Toronto’s Hot Docs International Documentary Festival.

You can learn more about Luc Chamberland’s work in our extended interview or by visiting his NFB director page.
