INTERVIEWS - Moira Marguin, Head of Animation at GOBELINS - l'école de l'image

TAAFI collaborated with the Consulate General of France in Toronto, Les Gobelins, Campus France Canada, L’Institut Français,  and Computer Animation Studios of Ontario (CASO) as part of Focus Animation to bring Moïra Marguin to Toronto.  Moïra Marguin is the head of animation at Gobelins, l'école de l'image.

Below, I've included pictures from the event and an interview I shot with Moïra Marguin that was held after the presentation.  In it she talks about the animation programs Gobelins offers, what their focus is, and how much they each cost.  The price of attending is surprisingly affordable and the quality of education is arguably one of the best in the world.  If you want proof of that, just watch any of the student films that are produced at Gobelins.  Another interesting detail is that all graduates, that is 100%, find work in the animation industry six months after graduating.  That's pretty impressive.

For more information check out TAAFI's blog post about the GOBELINS talk in Toronto.


These are some pictures taken during the event, which was held at the Textile Museum of Canada, 55 Centre Avenue
