LOCAL ANIMATOR MARTIN THOBURN SHARES HIS STORY
“Let’s Watch” with Martin Thoburn aired on December 6th and includes an engaging interview with the local artist as well as a screening of his film “Frames,” which was shown at the 49th AAFF (2011). In this segment, Martin expressed his interest in film and the digital and how this led to his career in graphic design and animation. He had a love for film from a young age, and attended Washtenaw Community College for high school in their Washtenaw Technical Middle College program. His involvement with the AAFF started when he was a student at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit and began making trailers for the Festivals. His film “Mates,” one of his thesis projects, screened at the 46th AAFF (2008) and he also recently created the trailer for last year’s Festival. Martin has enjoyed making the trailers and said, “It’s one of my favorite pro bono projects to do because I know people will get to see it and appreciate it.” Martin is a great friend of the Festival and this interview allows people to learn more about his life and creative works.
