Blogs Open Call - Viborg Animation Festival 2014

Looking for innovative experiments: Animation-based visuals for a live concert with Danish rock band Magtens Korridorer.

As part of the Viborg Animation Festival 2014, October 3rd – 5th (more on the 2012 edition at this very site), a concert performance with Danish rock favorites Magtens Korridorer and animation-based visuals will take place in intimate Viborg venue Paletten (capacity 500).

We’re looking for a different kind of live music experience, one that plays around with the relationship between music, band, visuals and/or audience.

Your job will be to come up with an innovative and interesting concept for the visuals, which can be executed within a budget of 200.000 DKR (roughly 27.000 euros). Everything from projection mapping to inflatable dolls may be incorporated – the only requirement is that a not insubstantial amount of the 200.000 must be set aside for animated visuals and that these will be produced in the Viborg animation cluster Arsenalet (www.arsenalet.dk).

Blogs ANIMA – The Brussels Animation Film Festival - 28 February through 9 March 2014 - Brussels, Belgium

The 33rd edition of ANIMA Brussels, 28 February through 9 March 2014 took a giant step toward becoming a world class animation festival this year when the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences bestowed qualifying status on ANIMA.  Joining such renowned festivals as Annecy and Zagreb, ANIMA’s Grand Prix winning short film Futon by Japanese animator Yoriko Mizushirlhas now officially qualified for the 2014 Oscar race.


Yoriko utilizes the traditional Japanese mattress, a futon, to take the audience into the dream fantasy world between consciousness and sleep.  While wrapped up in her futon the young girl in the film sinks into thoughts of life’s pleasurable waking hours – a piece of sushi, warm covers, a stretch of her body are all portrayed in sensual images using a soft color pallet.  A complete list of all of the winning films is at the end of the article.

Blogs TRIBUTE TO ANIMATION LEGEND JIMMY MURAKAMI

On the 16th of February 2014 the animation community lost another brilliant legend with the passing of 80 year old Teruaki “Jimmy” Murakami.  Jimmy leaves such a vast and varied legacy of films and such a complex personal history that it is impossible to sum up his achievements in a few sentences.

Born on 5 June, 1933 in San Jose, California in the United States, Jimmy was a Japanese-American, and at the age of 9 he and his family were interred in a WW II concentration camp along with tens of thousands of other Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast of the United States.  This tragic event left lifelong deep scars and changed his life forever, which was often reflected in his films.
