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!

Bar Shorts Question Time with Christine Hooper

Bar Shorts Question Time with Christine Hooper

We speak to the recent RCA Animation MA graduate, the brilliant Christine Hooper about film, animation and her pet-peeves. We discover there are usually two sides to the director, the posh and the not so and, for the first time in Bar Shorts Question Time history we get an actual play-list for the soundtrack of your life question.

Our BAA Favourites.

Last weeks British Animation Awards went down a treat at London’s BFI.

Celebrating the best of British, categories included ‘Student Excellence’ where our pal Ainslie Henderson won first prize for his brilliantly bittersweet I Am Tom Moody. The ‘Best Commissioned Animation’ award (a category we were in consideration for our RI Crystallography project) was deservedly awarded to Seed Animation for their RSPB: Vote for Nature animation promoting nature friendly farming schemes. We thought that the ‘Best Voice Performance’ should have gone to Bill Nighy for his performance in The Hungry Corpse by Beakus' Gergely Wootsch just because it was such a brilliantly animated story.  We also liked The Day I Killed My Best Friend, winner of ‘Best Student Film’ by Antonio J Busto Algarin for its imaginative animation and archaic pace in telling the sensitive story. 

There was a lot of talent on show and hats off to Jane Pilling & Co. for their continued dedication in showcasing the best in British animation.

12Foot6’s very own David Anderson and Andrew Kelleher, along with Chris Shepherd and Darren Walsh, gave their opinions about what makes great comedy animation in yesterday’s Bar Shorts at the Loco Film Festival.

And the answer is……………..timing.

As well as great scripting, fine art, funny jokes and being in the right place at the right time. To prove the point they showed Dog Judo, Bastard Bunny, Angry Kid and Anatole’s Island amongst others. 

Also on Sunday 26th, there will be another amazing comedic screening the other side of London at The Ritzy in Brixton.

LOCO Film Festival brings you a fine selection of comedy shorts to enjoy on a winter’s morning. Expect to see sporting prowess, sexual education and some very poor caravan maintenance.

Brilliantly all films, including out very own Dog Judo are eligible for the LOCO Discovery Short Film Award! Fingers crossed.
