VIEW Conference Flies With Aardman’s New Special ‘Robin Robin’

Italy’s VIEW Conference has added a new panel focusing on Aardman Animations’ stop-motion animated special Robin Robin, which premieres on Netflix on Nov 24. Robin Robin is an animated musical starring Gillian Anderson, Richard E Grant, Bronte Carmichael and Adeel Akhtar. In the film, a young robin is adopted and raised by a family of mouse burglars. Growing up, she plans a spectacular heist to prove her worth, only to find herself on an uplifting journey of self-discovery. Over the course of Robin Robin’s 30 minutes, audiences will meet a new collection of charming animal characters, which exchange Aardman’s trademark Plasticine style for a whimsical, handcrafted needle felting aesthetic.

The Robin Robin panel at VIEW Conference 2021 brings together writers/directors Dan Ojari and Mikey Please, alongside executive producer Sarah Cox and Aardman co-founder Peter Lord. During a highly animated conversation, the team will discuss their creative journey and share secrets about the innovative techniques they used to bring the vibrant musical world of Robin Robin to life.

“Every time an Aardman film comes out, I know it is going to be amazing,” says VIEW Conference director Dr. Maria Elena Gutierrez. “In addition to its beautiful new design aesthetic, Robin Robin is sure to warm all our hearts with Aardman’s unique brand of character-driven comedy. I am so proud to welcome Peter Lord and his creative team to VIEW Conference 2021, and so excited to hear what they have to say about their latest achievements.”
