Deadline: 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
