the return of Ryan Larkin

Wow! this is probably the best news I have heard this year. Ryan Larkin, who was an influential NFB animator in the 60's and 70's is making a long awaited return. Chris Landreth's oscar winning short Ryan (2004) brings into focus the blurred past of Larkin's rise and fall in the world of animation. From the once gilded halls of the NFB to panhandling on the streets of Montreal, Ryan Larkin is finally working on his first film in over 25 years called Spare Change. To help him finance his film he has a website and he has also created a poster (pic up top) for the 100th anniversary of the Saint-Laurent Boulevard. Visit his website for more info on how to support his film.
