Cold Pursuit was Conor Ryan's 2004 graduation movie from National Film School of Ireland. The story is one of a struggle between a gambolling polar bear and a slippery fish through the frozen land and sea. It is simply drawn though its visual impact is heightened by the series of windows through which we see the action. Ryan obtained a distinction in his degree. Style in animation is a difficult concept for my students to understand. Sometimes it equates to selection of colours, techniques used, whether it is literal or metaphorical, photographically exact or abstract. ("I can draw better than that, sir!") I tell them you know style when you see it; choose a style to suit your story, or lack of it. Conor's choice created much enthusiastic discussion in class for which I'm eternally grateful.
