René Walling · From fps #6 · February 2, 2006 | "Women don't animate."

Seeing the appallingly small amount of published material on Australian animation, Marian Quigley set out to correct the situation by interviewing ten women from Down Under who animate.

Animation production, funding and distribution in Australia, a look at independent animation worldwide, the role of women in animation and the effects of computer animation on independent productions, are some of the topics covered in the introduction. Some conclusions drawn from the interviews are also covered.
