Frame By Frame Fest
“It’s not an immediate art form, but somehow there is an instinctive quality to it that’s different from film, that’s closer to dance or music.” -Alex McDonald
Experimental animation moves past the boundaries of "normal" into uncharted territory. Frame By Frame Fest celebrates the new, weird, and brave in animation. The project includes a direct mailer with a brochure and poster, as well as a smartphone app.
The brochure has an interactive component; sliding the included sheet of transparency over specified illustrations will create colorful illusions of movement, in the spirit of experimental animation.
The Frame By Frame Festival app allows participants to create their own short animated clips. Touchscreen drawings are combined with video and audio to create 3-second animated snippets. The submitted clips will be combined into a spontaneous montage.
