Claire Blanchet is a Montreal-based filmmaker. Originally from Fredericton, she has studied dance, studio art, and philosophy. Her love of drawing and movement led her to Concordia University’s animation program, where she graduated as recipient of the Norman McLaren Award in 2007. She works with a variety of techniques: hand drawn, under-the camera, direct on film, stereoscopic and digital media. Past projects include Trash and No Star! (2008), co-directed with Karl Lemieux, and The Wobble Incident (2009), co-directed with Sam Vipond. Most recently, Claire completed 3D animated short The End of Pinky at the NFB. It is based on the short fiction of internationally acclaimed author Heather O’Neill.
