I was happy to have a couple of my animations included in the AI-AP Intl Motion Arts Awards this year, as well as to be a panelist at the BIG TALK on Thursday. I shared the stage with Stephen Mallon, who is doing some cool work with time-lapse photo / video. The topic was "artists transtioning into motion" and was moderated by David Schonauer. I think the talk went well, and it was nice to meet David in person finally.
My 2 accepted entries are ICON
, and THINGS WE KNOW
. They are each only about a minute long.
ICON was inspired by a workshop that I led at the ICON8 conference last summer. The character came out of that demo, and it just sort of turned into a short story. Also of note is the musician Maxwell Vann, who let me use his music for the ICON piece. The music was actually really integral in fleshing out the timeline.
THINGS WE KNOW was just inspired by Rummy's crazy rant. 'nuff said.
