Animation World Network co-founder and president OF ACME FILMWORKS Ron
Diamond has begun curating "animation art" to be presented on Los Angeles'
Sunset View Plaza Electronic Video Billboard on the world famous Sunset
Strip. The video billboard provides all Sunset Boulevard west-bound
travelers an eyeful sampled from the world's most beautiful and evocative
animation. Premiere, featured animation filmmakers are Aleksandra Korejwo,
Poland; Raimund Krumme, Germany; Susan Loughlin, United Kingdom; Bill
Plympton, USA and Gianluigi Toccafondo, Italy. Diamond will program new
material every three months to insure all travelers an ample opportunity to
see and enjoy new, different clips. Each clip is 30 seconds in length and
represents a direct excerpt from a longer independent film. The animation
is interspersed between billboard advertisements that are visible day and
night. "The purpose in selecting artistic animation clips for presentation
is to meet the City of West Hollywood's mandate to offer viewers a break
from conventional billboard advertising. It is a fantastic way to bring to
the public's attention the work of these high powered artists and hopefully
to create new production opportunities," explains Diamond. Animators
interested in having their work considered for the Sunset View Plaza
Electronic Billboard they should send an email to requesting
an official submission form.
