"Songbird" flies off to CPH:DOX

The VR-installation "Songbird" is on its way to CPH:DOX.

The Animation Workshop is super proud of the VR-installation "Songbird" which this week is flying of to CPH:DOX (Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival).

"Songbird" is an animated adventure where you will be transported to the island of Kauai in 1984 and into a painted replica of a lush cloud forest filled with colorful birds. Here, you are invited to search for the last known ʻōʻō, an iconic black bird with yellow leg feathers and a beautiful song, a bird whose existence has been threatened to the point of extinction.

"Songbird" is directed by Lucy Greenwell, and Michelle and Uri Kranot. The painted artwork and animation is also created by Uri and Michelle Kranot who have been honored with the top industry awards for their work, including the Oscar Academy Award Shortlist, and who are also the producers and creative directors of The Animation Workshop's ANIDOX program.

"Songbird" is created with our partners from The Guardian, HTC Vive and Carte Blanche Theater, and is a part of Expanded Animation at The Animation Workshop.

Come visit "Songbird" at CPH:DOX. You'll find the VR-installation at Kunsthal Charlottenborg from the 20th-31st of March 2019. Opening hours: 11:00 am-02:00 pm / 03:00 pm-06:00 pm / 07:00 pm-10:00 pm.
