Games day added to Animex

04 November 03

Calling all computer gamers - Animex, Middlesbrough’s celebration of animation organised by the University of Teesside and Middlesbrough Council, is adding a dedicated games day to its ever growing line up

Tuesday 27 January will see the first Animex Game - a day packed with games art, design and animation. Animex Game will feature leading figures and games firms delivering some breathtaking demonstrations.

Chris Williams, festival director and Principal Lecturer in animation at the University of Teesside, said: “Adding a dedicated games day to Animex has been part of the development plans we have had for the festival for some time. We are talking to a number of highly respected figures in the industry and look forward to announcing an incredibly interesting line up of speakers and company representatives very soon.

“Animex has built a great reputation for bringing some of the leading figures in the world of animation to Teesside, and I’m sure that Animex Game will build on this success.”

Other events at Animex include:

* Animex Talk! - appearances by stars of the animation industry, including Ben Shepherd, Visual Effects Supervisor at The Moving Picture Company, the lead post-production house behind the amazing effects seen in the recent Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.

* special screenings of animated movies

* animation created by University of Teesside students, school children and community groups from across the region

* animation projected onto the sides of buildings throughout Middlesbrough

* results of the inaugural Animex International Student Animation Awards

Ticket prices to attend both Animex Game (Tuesday 27 January 2004) and Animex Talk! (Thursday 29 - Friday 30 January 2004) are £70 - waged or £40 - students and unwaged.
