Animade Presents LoopdeLoop Animation Competition
Do you like looping animations? Of course you do! Long before Vine came along with their infuriatingly short loop length visual creatives had figured that animation was a brilliant medium to create narrative loops. Amy Knight from London animation studio Animade contacted us to say that they were bringing the rather wonderful LoopDeLoop animation challenge to London.
For those that don’t know, LoopDeLoop is a popular bi-monthly animation challenge, in which animators from around the world create looping animations based on a given theme and upload them to www.loopdeloop.org. At the end of every second month, the top 100 loops are compiled and screened to a live audience in various cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Paris, Los Angeles – and now London! The video above is Richard Chhoa’s winning loop on the Gravity theme from last time round.
This LoopDeLoop is a special collaboration with Amnesty International, a global movement of more than seven million people who take injustice personally. They campaign for a world where human rights are enjoyed by all. The theme for April/May is Empathy, anticipating Refugee Week which takes place every year from 14 June until World Refugee Day, on 20 June.
It’s not too late to enter this particular cycle of the competition – make sure you visit the LoopdeLoop website to find out when the deadline is. dotmogo will be covering this first London event and hopefully we can share all the UK winners.
The London screening will be held at Cafe 1001, 91 Brick Lane, at 8pm on Wednesday 27 May 2015 – free entry and open to all.
