Tom was in Salford last week checking out the progress of a brief we set the illustration students. As part of our ongoing Bar Shorts screenings we asked them to come up with ideas for stings that could run between the short films during the screenings, essentially funny and short idents that would compliment each film. There were some wacky ideas and we’re looking forward to seeing them animated.
On Monday 11 June there’s more than just films and drinks at Bar Shorts. There’s football.
England v France will be screened before the event at 5pm. Entrance is free plus the bar is offering 4 Tiger or Sol beers for £10 during the game. And there’s food from Big Apple Hot Dogs. Of course animators and footballers are not always natural bed fellows.
Bar Shorts opens as normal at 7pm with films starting around 7.30pm. There’s new Bob films from Darren Walsh, Headless Drummer by David Shrigley, Intermission by Robert Popper & Peter Serafinowicz, Happy Clapper by Tom Marshall and a whole lot more. Plus the first chance to see Grace Petrie’s Rise directed by our very own Chris Shepherd & Rod Main. Grace Petrie will then perform a live acoustic set.
All this for free. Wow. Hope to see you there at XOYO, 32-37 Cowper Street, London EC2A 4AP.
We’re all feeling a little worse for wear after last night’s Bar Shorts hosted by Chris Shepherd at XOYO. So here follow some stills from the night. For those who didn’t make it down, the next one is soon.
Here’s Barry Evans’ magnificent Get Well Soon short.
