A ghostly history of the many men who have graced Victoria’s City Hall comes from the Victoria College of Art. Described as a 150th anniversary gift to the city (partially funded by the Greater Victoria Spirit Committee), this 14-minute short was created by students in VCA’s animation program.

Colour-blind art student Andrew Morris drew most of the ex-mayors in a series of poses before eight other students coloured, rigged, animated and rendered the short in the computer lab.

Morris has been approached to work on the next animated project by Cartoon Saloon (Kilkenny, Ireland), whose animated film Story of the Kells was nominated for an Oscar last year.
