Announced last night in New York from the infamous Guggenheim Museum, Steve Scott's 'Parachute Endings' for Birdy Nam Nam is to be shown at the Guggenheim Museums around the globe (New York, Bilbao, Berlin, Venice & Abu Dhabi) as part of YouTube Play.
YouTube Play is a collaboration between YouTube and the Guggenheim Museum, presented by HP and Intel. The inaugural biennial showcases the most remarkable online videos from around the world. The biannual celebration is a call to the global YouTube community to submit innovative online videos that will capture the imaginations of viewers all over the world.
Over 23,000 entries were received from 91 countries with 125 being displayed on a new YouTube play channel; youtube.com/play. The final 20, of which Birdy Nam Nam is one, will now be on view to the public at the Guggenheim Museum and to a worldwide audience on the YouTube Play channel.
Steve Scott, speaking from New York adds “It is an honour to have made it to the final stage and to have my work show in the Guggenheim. Not many animation directors can say they have been part of an exhibition in the Guggenheim! Our hard work of delivering over sixty shots in one month for the video has really really paid off!”
