Back in Cape Town after 8 weeks of animation bliss… inspired and refreshed. We have just attended the Annecy Animation Festival in France, where we were doing some serious showreel dealing and just soaking up the cool vibe, big screens, paper jets, great training conferences and incredible variety of animation in competition. Definitely a place to go back to… pictures to be posted soon.
We have spent the past 5 weeks in Durban working with 15 very creative and talented people from around Africa in UNESCO’s Africa Animated! 2 Workshop. The animations we produced are having sound added in Kenya now and iaminawe is creating a website to showcase the finished pieces, so look for that. I worked with the talented Zimbabwean Carl Ncube to produce a stop motion animation called “Dear Mama” which is posted below.
