During the animago AWARD jury session the fictional advertorial clip “Lube-X” sure forced a lot of laughter. The project has been nominated in the category for “Best Advertising Production” mostly for its unique idea. We talked to Noah Demirci about this unusual project which the 3D artist created all on his own for his bachelor thesis at the Hochschule Luzern.
Tomer Eshed and his team, now known under a studio name Lumatic, always realize their funny movies with extraordinary animal characters in the main role on an extremely high level of quality. The director and animator now explains how these movies are created and how it is to work in Berlin.
Failure after failure – just to fly in the end regardless? The french inventor Hugo won´t give up until his lifetime dream has come true. The four-man team from the Fachhochschule Hagenberg is telling this story in their animated movie “Le Constructeur de Malheur”, which took a similar amount of willpower and endurance to make it happen.
One-man projects in the CG area do impress indeed, especially with this level of quality. Visual designer Xiaolin Zeng (aka Zaoeyo) created the Opening Titles for the Pause Festival in Australia, which got a nomination for the „Best Motion Design“ category from the animago committee. And not just because there was a cat involved!
We are very much looking forward to welcoming Chaos Group to this year’s animago AWARD & CONFERENCE. In 2018, in addition to sponsoring the category “Best Visualization”, the company will also be setting up a tradeshow stand at the animago EXHIBITION.
What if cartoon characters were regular people working at regular jobs and enduring the same everyday routines like the rest of us? The short film “Afterwork” took up this train of thought and ended up winning the 2017 animago AWARD for “Best Short Film”.
Last year’s animago AWARD for Best Young Production went to “Less than Human”, a documentary style animated film created by students at the Danish school known as The Animation Workshop. The team also took home the €3,000 sponsored by Digital Production in the category every year!
