TOWER, an extraordinary documentary about the 1966 mass-shooting at the University of Texas here in Austin, combines archival footage with rotoscopic animation in a dynamic, never-before-seen way. But, how did the filmmakers do it? How did they build the soundscape supported animation to feel so real that audiences had visceral reactions? Come hear from the animation, sound design, and editing team to learn about the thoughts and processes that went into this truly genre redefining project.
