The Story of Turtle from Turtle Island

16mm film/video, 5 minutes, 1996

Producer John Bessai of Cinefocus Canada (Toronto) hired me to animate this First Nation story about health care. We worked with designer Pat Levalle in developing the project. I am very happy with this film. It is the first time I used extensive colour photocopying in my animation. My only disappointment was that, as a client commissioned work, it was not in our power to seek greater distribution. It was nominated for a Golden Sheaf award in 1997.
