HouseSpecial: Portland Animating Portland

May 10, 2017 at 7:00 pm9:00 pm

Portland animation studio HouseSpecial is best known for bringing iconic characters to life across all animation mediums. In collaboration with Travel Portland and Wieden + Kennedy, the studio recently produced the “You Can, in Portland” stop-motion campaign and exclusively for the festival, are bringing a world-class team of producers, directors, artists, and animators to the stage to create a “missing scene”–from preproduction to animation–in ONE HOUR.

Audience members will weigh-in on creative decisions as HouseSpecial journeys through story, design, fabrication, set load-in and lighting–culminating with real-time animation of the scene. Celebrate the start of festival week with a very rare and special interactive experience!

After the presentation, join us for “Meet the Animation Tribe”: a free networking party directly across the street at The Magnolia wine bar. Whether you’re an industry veteran, a freelancer just finding your feet, or only arrived in Portland yesterday, show up to schmooze with friends, both old and new.


The Northwest Animation Festival showcases visionary worlds of fantasy, unforgettable stories, and outlandish oddities from around the globe. See the year’s best short films, selected from over 1100 submissions. Pick your favorite topic, or treat yourself to an all-festival pass and experience the whole five-day extravaganza. If you’re an animation-lover, this is the must-see event of 2017!
