Paper Cinema

Here’s a link to the fabulous animation by local artist Anne MacMillan which premiered at the Whittle Big Man Gala April 26. This fun look at cinema nostalgia features the Acadia Cinema. Annie is a NSCAD BFA grad, originally from Wolfville, who has just been accepted into the digital animation program at MIT.
