May 2019 'Faces'

Our first Overlap Animation Show & Tell took place during Flatpack Festival with a special live score from Greg McLeod for his latest film, BERMINGHAM. The prompt was 'Faces'. Appropriate AND vague.

This was the first night for local animators to showcase and socialise in Birmingham for about a decade. So, I was pretty nervous about who would actually submit or show up. Were there enough animators locally to make a weird interactive night like this successful?

It was an eye-opener at how many active filmmakers were around making REALLY good work. Mostly unaware of each other. 5 films were created specifically for the night and the crowd were really supportive. Luke Bourne's 'These Things In My Head - Side A', shortly went on to win an award at Annecy.

Hopefully we’ve started the seed of a network who motivate each other to keep being artists.

Thanks to Ayub Khan for the photos and Max Priddy for handling tech on the night.
