Worldwide Animotion Festival

Worldwide Animotion Festival

Loving animation and being allowed to take on any task I wanted, I chose to make up a festival for animators of all kinds.

There are a ton of animation festivals out there, but they usually discriminate types of animation. This festival would be a place for animators of all kinds to mingle, whether it’s handdrawn, painted, 3D animated, motion graphics and all other forms of animation, it would all be celebrated and shown, opening peoples eyes to more than just what they are familiar with. It would be a place not just to showcase animated works, but also to share techniques and new technologies or discoveries in animation, a place for anyone of any skill or interest to learn and form new connections.

The sack logo-mascot comes from the basic principles of animation, many young animators in training is tasked with basic animation excercises, animating a sack, giving it life and personality is one of those. Although the exercise caters more to hand-drawn animators it is a well known animation exercise for anyone wanting to animate a figure within any medium. It represents a unified experience most animators can relate to, as well as standing as a symbol for animation itself, the idea of bringing something lifeless to life.
