Animex Street   29-30 January 2004

Animex Street takes the festival out to the people of Tees Valley. Last year we were gifted with the North East’s highest animated projection, which filtered down from the top five floors of Centre North East, digitally producing tears visible for miles around.

Animex Street  takes the festival out to the people of Tees Valley. Last year we were gifted with the North East’s highest animated projection, which filtered down from the top five floors of Centre North East, digitally producing tears visible for miles around.

Animex Street  will be showcasing the best of international animation alongside the work produced in Teesside by University students, schoolchildren and community groups.

Look out for innovative screenings at Arc Stockton, where the whole top floor will be immersed in visual movement, and keep your eyes peeled and your ear to the ground all around the Boro and surrounding areas. Specific sites will be James Cook University Hospital, Captain Cook Museum, shops, pubs and clubs in and around the Cleveland Centre, Stockton Riverside College, and the walls and alleyways of Teesside’s streets.

Artist collective Hypothalamus will be grabbing your attention with an audio visual experiment in spacial association and physical mapping. The sounds of Hypothalmus can be heard all week at Middlesbrough train station and in the Cleveland Centre. A special performance arts project will take place at Arc in Stockton-on-Tees.

Animex Street  will also present Antron the movie where 1984 meets Easterside. We’ve also teamed up with a bunch of actors, sculptors, poets and dancers to deliver animation within a mixed genre environment.

Video capture workshops exploiting new mobile phone technology will be teaming up with mobile animators all throughout Animex Street week. Ultrasonic beams will trigger animated sequences courtesy of Equaliser productions and Club Techno.

BBC Radio Cleveland have also donated their splendid community bus for the duration of the festival and will be visiting local schools and youth clubs with an on-board resident animator to develop a locally based animation awareness strategy that will showcase Animex’s overriding principles. Principles that are centred around making animation fun and accessible for all.

COME ON TEESSIDE GET ANIMATED!

As for last year . . .
