ANIMATION LOCKDOWN 2014
48 Hour Challenge!! LIFE vs CARTOONS
May 16th – 19th = Animation Lockdown!
May 23rd – Lockdown Screening feat. SPACE JAM and a Basketball Game!
This May long weekend, teams of 1 – 3 are invited to gather at Quickdraw to eat food, think wildly, get sloppy, and make animations. You will have 48 hours, studio space, equipment, a technician on hand, and yes, unlimited foodstuffs and caffeine. Everyone is welcome, and no experience is necessary. The animations are screened 2 days later at a sweet party that includes more food, more sloppiness, and RAD PRIZES!
This year’s theme is LIFE vs. CARTOONS! We challenge you to combine elements of live action with animation. Think Mary Poppins, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and yes, Space Jam. So much you can do! For live footage there’s found footage, garbage you shoot on your phone, or the green screen (we’ll have one set up!). For animation, use any style you’re into. Our lovely staff will be on site to help you,
Sign up fee: $50 for members (includes food, caffeine, studio space, equipment, and technical assistance for the long weekend event) OR $100 for non members (includes year-long production membership). Fee is per person.
REGISTRATION WILL OPEN SUPER SOON! HANG ONTO YOUR SHORTS!
