About Spring Ridge Commons Inventory, Labelling + Signage Project:

About Salt and Ashes:

Salt and Ashes will be a short 7 minute film/animation on a lyrical and surreal animated dream-journey through the emotional landscape of cancer and chemotherapy directed by artist Anne Hoban and animated by Sean Newton.  It will be  produced using traditional animation, cut-out animation and digital ink and paint with a completion date scheduled for December 2015.

Anne Hoban is a visual artist.   Anne’s partner in this project is her husband Sean Newton, who is a storyboard artist and key animator.  His extensive background in animation speaks for itself, having worked on dozens of productions including Ghostbusters, Heavy Metal, and The Wall.
