Synopsis

An introduction to the work of Joy Batchelor, animator, director, and producer. Joy was one half of the Halas & Batchelor Cartoons Studio which made the UK's first animated feature film, Animal Farm, in 1954. Although a crucial figure in British animation, today she is almost unknown, something this film seeks to redress. http://www.halasandbatchelor.co.uk
