MOBIFEST LALos Angeles, California, USAApril 3, 2007Deadline: March 28, 2007
The Animation Show and Mobifest, the world's largest independent mobile film festival, present MOBIFEST LA, a one-of-a-kind event, which brings the world's top animators to the small screen. Hosted by award-winning animator and co-founder of The Animation Show, Mike Judge (BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD, KING OF THE HILL), MOBIFEST LA takes place at Laemmle's Music Hall 3, 9036 Wilshire Blvd., Tuesday, April 3, 2007 at 7:30 PM.
Established and emerging animators can enter the competition and be one of five animations screened at MOBIFEST LA. Finalists will be selected by a panel of celebrity judges with the best animation eligible for a grand prize that includes a trip to MOBIFEST LA, a creative session with Mike Judge, a mobile distribution agreement, a Palm Treo smartphone and a Microsoft Zune digital media player.
Animators can also submit original work under a special video contest category entitled, "Sweet Dreams." Sponsored by Nestle Butterfinger, "Sweet Dreams" tasks animators and filmmakers to create a dream sequence for Butterfinger's icon, "The Finger." "The Finger", who represents the Butterfinger's promise to "Feed Your Appetite for Fun", was launched in early 2006 and has since spawned a popular online community (www.followthefinger.com) dedicated to "Inventive Fun."
All animations submitted must be 60 seconds or less, and shot and created specifically for the small screen. Submission criteria and tips for making made-for-mobile movies are available at the MOBIFEST Website. Visit www.mobifest.net or www.animationshow.com for full details.
