Michael Cusack Retrospective + Q&A

Scroll to content

Michael Cusack is an Australian animating legend. Probably best known as the hand behind the crazy-happy Schmakoes commercials, his studio (Anifex) is one of Australia’s longest operating stopmotion producers and Michael has created a superb body of personal auteur films, including his latest “After All” which open our Australian Showcase program this year.
