Elise Simard, Montreal

Until the Sun and Moon go draws its inspiration from live sound recording at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery. The film stands as a personal reflection about love; it seeks to think of our planet as a child, and to think of our children as little suns – and the indivisibility that ensues. The film has been built with hand drawn textures and animation.

Elise Simard is a Montreal based animation
director who also specializes in handmade special
effects. She has contributed visual signatures for
documentary features and animated shorts, and
enjoys collaborations with amazing filmmakers and
artists. In 2012 she directed My Little Underground at the National film Board of Canada, where she often takes part in projects and research. Her filmography includes the tiny musical Breakfast (2013), produced while in residency at the Aberystwyth Art Center in Wales, and Opening Hours (2015), an occult fantasy centered around the Jarry park in Montreal. Elise has been expanding her body of work through experimental and exploratory filmmaking.
