S'up British (and world) animators? y'all klnow 'bout this? It's next year, yeah? they're looking for entries now right? and there's an animated sting competition. dig it. you'd be a fool not to.
It’s a one stop shop for the industry to see the best of the best- each University displays the work of only their top ten students.
With more and more games and animated movies using performance capture technology, will it be the death of traditional hand animation? This week, Story Board Artist and Animator, Ben Bowen, suggests there is room for them both to live together.
Watch Me Move: The Animation Show
Watch Me Move kicks off at the Barbican Art Gallery, London, on 15 June and celebrates animation and its impact on culture over the past 150 years. Featured artists will include Étienne-Jules Marey, Harry Smith and Jan Švankmajer, as well as the output of major studios such as Walt Disney and Pixar.
IdeasTap are offering six animators aged between 16-25 the chance to screen their work as part of the festival. Films must be approximately five minutes in length, and PG- or 12-rated films will have the best chance of making it to the big screen.
If that wasn’t enough, the six shortlisted films will also be screened on Wallpaper.com where their readers will vote to pick an overall winner who will then be profiled on their website.
