Cue Northwest is a partnership between Brick Lane Records and Northwest Film Forum. We believe connecting artists across disciplines creates a fertile environment for building community through art. Through a series of collaborative projects including production residencies and networking events, Cue Northwest will galvanize the film and music communities
We’ve selected a filmmaker: Congratulations Neely Goniodsky! As part of the residency, Neely will be creating an animated short film inspired by Night Walk from The One & The Other by Benjamin Verdoes
Neely has a BA in animation from Concordia University, Montreal, and an MA from the Royal College of Art, London. She is interested in abstract narrative and visual experimentation. In her work she attempts to translate obscure reality into visual poetry. She explores a combination of traditional animation techniques including ink and paint on paper, cut-out collage, under the camera animation, 2D computer animation and compositing. Neely has directed and animated over twenty short animated films. Some of her noteworthy productions include ‘Pearl’ a short film she directed and animated at the NFB, and ‘The Smiths’ a production for Seattle University. She has received numerous Canada Council and CALQ grants.
