Synopsis


In this short animation, the archetypal hero takes a journey through seven stages: birth, childhood, mission, labyrinth, monster, battle and death/rebirth. Through purely abstract, moving images, the corresponding emotional states are conveyed: calm, love, joy, surprise, fear, anger/hate, and death/rebirth leading again to calm. The cycles continue until the stars burn out and there is nothing left. Minotaur was created stereoscopically in IMAX® Sandde (Stereoscopic ANimation Drawing Device), the world's first freehand stereoscopic 3D animation software.

Munro Ferguson


Born in New York City in 1960, Munro Ferguson took a very early interest in cartooning and film. In 1994, he joined the NFB English Program’s Animation Studio, where he wrote, directed and animated How Dinosaurs Learned to Fly (1995). He created Falling in Love Again, winner of the 2004 Genie Award for Best Animated Short, and June, an elegy for his close friend and mentor, artist Joyce June Wieland. June premiered at the Art Gallery of Ontario and was invited to numerous international festivals and exhibitions. Munro’s most recent film, Minotaur, is an abstract expression of the mythic hero’s journey towards death and back again, with original music by Kid Koala.
