Call for Entries: ‘Your Face’ Global Jam Welcomes Animators Worldwide for Bill Plympton Tribute

Deadline for submissions of three-second segments to global animation jam is August 31, 2017.

LOS ANGELES -- Bella Fe Films has announced an open call to animators worldwide to participate in Your Face Global Jam, a tribute to twice-Oscar-nominated “King of Indie Animation,” Bill Plympton.

Plympton, celebrating 30 years since his first Oscar nomination for his hand-drawn surreal animation Your Face has opened up this film for reinterpretation by his fans and fellow animators for the re-mastered release of the original film, and seeks to include tribute interpretations in his special features.

Bella Fe Films director Ken Mora has to-date compiled more than 40 three-second segments from animators in over a dozen countries for the Global Jam, and has further opened up more segments in an open-call competition for inclusion in the film.

Submissions of available three-second segments to the Global Jam are due by August 31, 2017. Segments can be claimed to the Your Face Global Jam YouTube channel, and the best submission for each segment will be included in the Jam.

Interested animators can also participate in the more ambitious re-interpretation of the entire film as detailed in Plympton’s own blog at
