The set up was fairly epic for Shiyi Li & Gloria Yehilevsky's live music and performance infused animation, Minister Of Loneliness.
Our new home was Kongs Birmingham who weren't quite sure what to expect as we set up projector screens and a full-sized orchestral glockenspiel.
The turn out was fantastic, the word had obviously spread that this was as much a night for animators as it was for appreciators. The tech was charmingly shambolic, giving people a chance to have a drink and mingle.
We had some more interactive elements. Gloria Yehilevsky live scored Chris Randall's latest experimental instalment. Louis also improvised the sound effects for his recent animation. Ollie Jones showed his trilogy of music videos for Psychedelic Porn Crumpets. Featuring film, stop motion, drawn, cut out, puppetry, miniatures, digital effects. Ollie threw the lot at them.
