Passion for animation – Post Courier
BY PATRICK TOM
THE Post-Courier cartoonist Salvator Brere says his dream is to see the animation industry grow so that one day PNG talent can access local content.
He said there are a lot of people like him in the country who are better at producing content for animation and producing it, but the industry in the country is small.
Mr Brere said that after graduating from Technical College in Port Moresby he joined the National newspaper before joining the Post-Courier in 2014.
âI was working freelance before I was officially employed in the media industry,â he said. âI have learned a lot from the white master with whom I have worked since I arrived. I look forward to working on all pressing issues concerning the country.
He’s said to have worked on general graphics and illustrations over the years, especially doing cartoons, and now that’s a part of him.
âMy dream is to produce animated films, especially for children, based on stories from Papua New Guinea,â he said.
âThere are people who are brilliant at animating and producing content, but the point is, the industry is small here in the country. My goal is to produce animated films and characters for children and to tell our tumbuna stories.
His encouragement to his fellow cartoonists or professionals is to never lose interest in what they are doing and to keep working hard and chasing their dreams.
Salvator Brere is The Post-Courier’s own cartoonist who features the Five Buai segment, Wasa Lus in the Yu Tok column and the Kina Toea every Friday of the Post-Courier.
