LoopDeLoop Animation Challenge Hosted By Animade
“Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do criticize him, you’ll be a mile away and have his shoes.” It’s all about empathy, as Steve Martin helpfully points out in this quote… As we discussed in our previous post about the international animation challenge about Loop de Loop, animation studio Animade organised the first ever UK screening in Cafe 1001.
This LoopDeLoop is a special collaboration with human rights organisation Amnesty International. and also ties in with Refugee Week which takes place every year from the 14th of June until World Refugee Day, on the 20th of June. Lets face it the world needs as much empathy as it can get…
As each animation is quite short, there are loads of entries, which would be impossible to show here. However to give you an idea everyone settled down in the Cafe 1001 screening area and after a brief intro from Tom and Ed from Animade watched the 45 min compilation of loops in two 22 minute chunks with a break.
In total there were 11 UK entries – Alessandro Nobile, Rishi Rai, Urvashi Lele, Matt Osborne, Ami Bogin, Luke Carpenter, Carlos Galvez Balaguer, James Turzynski, Adam Wells, Ed Barrett and Luke Marsh who was voted the local UK winner.
The next LoopdeLoop competition is already open with the theme ‘ritual’. You can enter at the LoopDeLooop website here now
The next screening is booked for Wednesday 5 August!
There is talk of making loopdeloop as a monthly competition – which would certainly keep the future participants on their toes – whatever the frequency – are you up to the challenge….?
