This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series called NB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today, we hear from Gene Fowler and Jessica Beckett of Loogaroo of Miramichi.
WE’RE VERY UNIQUE AS WE’RE THE ONLY ANIMATION STUDIO IN THE PROVINCE, OUR STUDIO SUPPLIES WORK TO DOZENS AND DOZENS OF ARTISTS IN MIRAMICHI AND NEW BRUNSWICK.
These are rare people, sensitive people. People that need an outlet and to make money… so we supply art bursaries to local high schools to help get things started, we’re tied to the animation course at NBCC, we sponsor events for the creative community, put up murals, and do art camps for kids. We’re growing people that will know how to express themselves artistically as a way of life.
We’ve been producing television animation now for over 20 years, I think we’re going to get funky with our techniques, switch it up a bit, maybe get into film. Who knows? Who cares? Let’s draw every day and have fun.
