Cut&Paste London announced Colin Bigelow & Jay Harwood as the winning 2D/3D team and Steve West as the winner in Motion/Animation.
Announcement from Cut&Paste:
On April 26, 2012, Cut&Paste was back in London, but with a new special edition format. Congratulations to Colin Bigelow & Jay Harwood for being the winning 2D/3D team and to Steve West, the winner in Motion/Animation!
This year Cut&Paste combined its 2D and 3D competitions into a team format with three 2D/3D pairs, facing off in a three-round battle. Judge Charlie Sells of Jelly commented that “This... was a true geek fest!! Each team had very different strengths.” The Digital Design Tournament also featured its Motion/Animation competition with five 15-second videos that each competitor created in eight furious hours.
Special thanks to our tournament judges James Wignall of Mutant Hands, Thiago Maia of Cake, Mike Alderson of ManvsMachine, Lee Walker of Mainframe, Charlie Sells of Jelly, Edward Barrett of Animade, and to London's design community for casting their votes through Twitter & Facebook. At C&P London, there was an overwhelming sense of camaraderie & a unique respect for each designer.
"The best thing to see was the enthusiasm for design from competitors and audience alike." - Mike Alderson, ManvsMachine
