London Animation Club Group Show

On an extremely warm and muggy evening, we screened a selection of recently completed films as well as many works in progress. These group screenings prove so popular that I will try to do two a year.

Group Show 4th July 2018

The filmmakers, including, left to right, Rosemary Norman, Stuart Pound, Tara Purnima, Brogan Ashleigh Jones, Anna Smirnova, Daria Maka, Steve Roberts, Philip Sanderson, Alex Widdowson, Jessica de Leeuwe, Mario Radev, Rob Munday, Claire Desenclos and Ged Haney

In a London Animation Club exclusive, we also did a video crit of Max Hattler’s new work in progress, the abstract film Matter And Motion. Being based in Hong Kong, Max was unable to attend but I got our audience of filmmakers to offer advice to camera.

The screening was structured in such a way that the first half mainly consisted of comedy, figurative and hand-drawn animations and the second half experimental, abstract and documentation films. To bring things full circle, we also started the screening with one stop-motion plasticine-animation and finished with another.
