We hope to launch a new call for the ANIDOX Summer residency collaborative film project in Spring 2018.
The ANIDOX Summer Residency 2017: “Sinking of the Truth”
An ANIDOX Collaborative film project!
In 1918, Winsor McCay was commissioned “The sinking of the Lusitania”, a propaganda film portraying the sinking of an English boat by a German submarine during WW1. Beside being an animation classic, this film is considered to be the first ever made animated documentary. 100 years later, in the age of fake news, a collective of talented animation filmmakers will gather to unearth the truth from deep waters and create a contemporary homage to the film. (link to the original film here)
7 animation artists have joined forces to create a collaborative film project. Each artist will contribute ca. 1 min. sequence which will be edited together to a short animated film. The residency takes place in Viborg, Denmark, between June and July 2017.
The project, supported by Aarhus 2017, will have a preview screening at Viborg Animation Festival in September!
