One of South Africaâ€™s most famous historical and literary characters is now the subject of one of the countryâ€™s first ever 3-D animated feature films.
In an entertaining and informative multimedia presentation, writer and director Duncan MacNeillie, together with the filmâ€™s marketing director, Andy Rice, reveals the fascinating process that developed the story of South Africaâ€™s beloved canine hero from a personal memoir to a national icon, to a live action feature film and now to an animated family movie, proving that even though he is over a century old, Jock continues to make history in more ways than one. The presentation will include the following:
- On the Trail with Jock for 25 years: MacNeillie gives his first-hand account of taking Jock from the page to the live action screen in 1986 and now into the new millennium through the medium of 3-D animation.
- Behind- the-scenes snippets, the technology, the score and songs
- Marketing: the synergy of arts and business
- The future of animation in South Africa
The Making of Jock in 3-D is presented by CLASSICFEEL Magazine in collaboration with University of the Witwatersrand Alumni, supported by Business and Arts South Africa, and with the special participation of Jock Animation and Jock Marketing.
