Animalia: from the page to the screen G

First published twenty year ago, now Animalia's magical talking animals are ready to leap from the page to the screen. Alex and Zoe cross into a troubled placed called Animalia. Can they unravel the mysteries of this unusual land?


Graeme Base, Melbourne author of the classic best-selling book Animalia and Ewan Burnett (Burberry Productions) will describe the amazing process of transforming ideas in order to bring them to life as animated television stories 'where animals rule!'

Be first to book your students in for a chance to glimpse this international, 40-part animated television series and to hear about its adaptation for the screen.

Ewan Burnett has worked in the Australian film and television industry for more than 27 years, is currently on the Board of Film Victoria and is Adjunct Professor of Media in the School of Applied Communications at RMIT University.
