Instructor: Kevin D.A. Kurytnik | www.fifteenpoundpink.com

Kevin is very dedicated to both facets of his animation career, as a conscientious teacher and mentor of visual narrative and animation, and as a professional independent animation Writer/Director. Both of these facets feed each other, with his professional practice providing experiences and resources to share with students, and teaching exposing him to fresh ideas and approaches. As a teacher, Kevin has been fortunate to be able to share the world of animation and story telling with many people, working with everyone from preschoolers to grandparents.

In his professional experience as an animator, Kevin has been creating independent projects for over 30 years at his own studio, Fifteen Pound Pink Productions. His work has been screened locally, nationally, and internationally, in venues from gallery installations to film festivals. A 35mm print of his film Mr. Reaper’s Really Bad Morning was selected for inclusion in the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa in 2007, and the Cinematheque Quebecoise in Montreal in 2009. His most recent production, for the National Film Board of Canada North West Centre, is Skin for Skin, a 15 minute historical/environmental/mythic Canadian adventure set in 1823 during the height of the fur trade. This film has one several awards, including the 2018 AMPIA Award for Best Director Drama Under 30 Minutes, Best of Festival at the Yorkton Film Festival, Oscar qualifying awards at CIFF and EIFF and being placed on the long list for Best Animated Short at the 91st Academy Awards. He is current developing an animated feature film (You WERE Here), and a short film based on the Ursula K. Le Guin short story The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas.
