Bar Shorts Question Time with Marcus Armitage

We chat to filmmaker and soon to be RCA graduate, Marcus Armitage, about his influences so far, what his favourite sandwich is and what really are his pet film hates.

Here’s a sneaky peek at our Animated Anarchy and Audio Reactive Mayhem installation called UNDERLAND at Jaguar Shoes in London.

You can check out the multi-sensory basement full of art, animation, audio-reactive guest participation and projections until 10th July.

A mini homage to fifteen years in animation and character creation, we have reappropriated our favourite creatures into the visual and audible magical wonderland.

Throughout the UNDERLAND residency permanent fixtures will include a collaboratively painted mural plus a looped character based animation on the main wall. One of the four screens will be dedicated to interactive play. With some clever trickery using Quartz Composer and Animata software, visitors will be encouraged to plug in their smartphones and watch the characters on screen dance to their favourite songs.

Save the date and join us on 26th June for a mid-term party!
