Over the last six weeks, the exhibition ‘Once Upon A Time in Animation’ has celebrated animation practices at the National Centre for Computer Animation (NCCA) and beyond. The NCCA has been at the forefront of computer graphics and animation education and research in the UK since 1989. Since then, the NCCA has been internationally recognised by the creative industries as a global leader in education and research in computer animation, visualisation and game production. The exhibition also marks the launch of the NCCA Archive collection, generously funded by National Lottery Heritage funding. This talk takes a look back at the planning and curation of the exhibition, in the midst of Covid-19, and a prospective look forward at the NCCA Archive collection, a future repository of animation practices and a resource for researchers, students and the public.
