Attention: Marian Stoney

Hi Marian

I'm writing to let you know that the Melbourne International Animation
Festival 2007 is very excited to announce a special 'Teen Program' of
festival highlights (for the very first time!), a 'Career's in
Animation Forum' presented by Holmesglen Institute of TAFE, and a
program of our favourite cult hero from the memorable 60's series,
'Roger Ramjet'!

MIAF is one of the largest animation festivals in the world and one of
Melbourne's largest film events. It runs 19-24 June at ACMI Cinemas,
Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Federation Square, and shows
some of the best current animated shorts from around the world as well
as specially curated programs and retrospectives.

There has always been a major gap in our program, because most of the
festival is unclassified. This means that only those folk over the age
of 18 can enjoy MIAF (except for the Kids Program which is really for
the little kids), and this scenario has of course been extremely
frustrating for our enthusiastic under 18 audience. That's why we're
REALLY thrilled to offer these 3 programs!

We would greatly appreciate your help with distributing the following
information to your students, friends and colleagues.

You can also download a colour flyer from the website at:
http://www.miaf.net/2007/teen07.pdf (it's about 700kb in size), or to
check out the whole festival, please visit www.miaf.net.

Tickets can be purchased through ACMI Box Office:
In person: Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Federation Square,
Flinders Street, Melbourne
Phone: 03 8663 2583, 1-6pm daily
Online: www.acmi.net.au/tickets


'Teen Program', presented by Holmesglen Institute of TAFE
Thursday 21 June @ 5.15pm
Tickets only $5.00

This year for the first time, MIAF launches a program of films drawn
from the main competition to show specially to a High School age
audience. It's a pretty serious bummer that you guys can't get into
most of the festival (coz of weird laws) but we've bent the rules a
bit this time and here's a few festival highlights we hope you'll enjoy!


'Careers In Animation Forum', presented by Holmesglen Institute of TAFE
Wednesday 20 June @ 7.00pm

Looking for a career in Animation?
Attend this FREE event to get the right start!

After the success of this forum in MIAF last year, the Animation
Careers Forum returns and will again present a panel of experienced
animation industry and education representatives. The Forum will
provide an overview of what the animation industry is looking for in
graduates and the courses available with the key education providers
in this field, to get you started in this dynamic industry.

The 'Careers in Animation Forum' will be a general discussion amongst
panellists and the audience about the animation industry including job
opportunities, realistic salary expectations and how to get your foot
in the door. Plus the panel will address the diversity of the industry
including the opportunities to specialise in different fields and work
overseas. All aspects relevant to a career in animation will be
covered with the aim to assist you to decide if this is the career for
you and the skills you need to enter this industry.

There will be opportunity for you to ask questions and gain an insight
into the exciting career opportunities in this fast-growing industry.


'Roger Ramjet'
Wednesday 20 June @ 9.00pm
Sunday 24 June @ 4.15pm (repeat screening)
Tickets: Full $14, Conc $11

Legendary! Simple as that!

Coming as it did out of the 60's, it was probably a bit of a shot at
the 'Top Guns' of the era, those jet fuelled ego baskets who were
household names in their day and who promised to share with America
the slipstreams their sleek jet planes and rockets were creating in
the national psyche.

As a kind of cojoined parody/homage figure, Roger Ramjet has stood the
test of time. Every aspect of these episodes murmur and scream

Sparsely but brilliantly drawn, cheesey but bitingly well written and
with voice talent that is over the top and spot on in terms of
capturing the various nuances of the work, these Roger Ramjet episodes
show us how its done.

With 120 episodes to choose from, it was always going to be fun
selecting this line-up. The next best fun is to come along and see
which ones we picked.


Thanks for your time. Please do not hesitate to call me on 0407 87
5951 if you have any questions, or if you would like me to send a
program or a poster.

Kind regards
