ENTROPIA

SPECIAL MENTION IN COMPETITION OF SHORT STUDENTS ANIMATED FILMS

PLANKTOON

 

 

WINNER IN COMPETITION OF SHORT ANIMATED FILMS FOR CHILDREN

The 7 Kids is a reworking of the fairytale of “The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats”, told in a refreshing new way. We liked it the most because the animation was great, it was funny, original and visually arresting.

THE 7 KIDS

director Marina Karpova

 

 

 

 

SUPERTUNE

 

 

WINNER IN COMPETITION OF ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO

From the big and amazing selection of music video shown at this year’s Supertoon festival that cover almost the whole spectrum of animation techniques, styles, sensibilities and authorial conceptions, this film stood out to us primarily because it greatly succeeded in following and visualising the energetic, rhythmic, rough and somewhat wild dance music through a surprisingly rich and varied range of inspired, funny and bizarre gags and slowly pulling the viewer into a hypnotic, euphoric state of harmony with the music.

    !!! (CHK CHK CHK): COULDN’T HAVE KNOWN

director Cheng-Hsu Chung

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPECIAL MENTION IN COMPETITION OF ANIMATED MUSIC VIDEO

This film took us on an isometric safari through wondrous wallpapers and patterns made of moving graphic microcosms and molecules. The film is a visual treat and encapsulates the spirit of the song it is illustrating in a brilliant way; perhaps a tiny bit hermetic, but it’s guaranteed to be a favourite of every lover of the more experimental approach to form and narration in animation.

    JO GOES HUNTING: CAREFUL

director Alice Saey

 

 

 

 

 

SUPERCOMM

 

WINNER IN COMPETITION OF ANIMATED COMMERCIALS

This film uses the set format of an animation festival trailer with precision and efficacy, employing humor and references to Japanese animation and its widely known themes, to articulate and speedily deliver both serious and funny commentary on the wider global, apocalyptic context of the world and the culture today  – and consequently the position of animation in all of this.

    FAF – Fredrikstad Animation Festival Trailer
