Gotta love a great ANIJAM! A bunch of disparate animators come together and individually animate a section of a film BUT each without knowing what the other has done. Each animator passes on only the last frame of their sequence – the next animator has to take that frame, craft their own sequence in their own style and pass on their last frame. Sometimes there’s a theme, sometimes not. This is animators coming out to play and the results are encyclopaedic compendiums of style, energy and ideas – and a who’s-who roll-call of top international indie animating talent.
For some reason a bunch of really, really good anijams came in this year. We always get a few but this time around there were just so many good ones, they cried out for their own program….. and this is that program. Pure animationin’ joy!!
