Animex and Red Stick Animation Festivals join forces!
29 October 04
It's been nearly a year since we started planning the Red Stick International Animation Festival, and so far it's been amazing. Animex, the biggest and best UK festival, and Red Stick are going to partner on some up-coming initiatives, and are very excited to be sharing our visions and missions with the people of our communities.
Animex leaders Chris Williams, Mark Elliot, and Dougy Pincott, visited Louisiana State University in May and started some stellar dialogues here in Baton Rouge. They met with the Governor's Secretary for Culture, Recreation & Tourism, the Governor's Director of the Office of Film and Television, the Head of Louisiana Public Broadcasting, and the Head of the Arts Council. The visit was hailed a resounding success. The influential team from the UK made a glorious impression on our local leaders. The community is very excited about the Animation Festival at the newly constructed Shaw Center for the Arts!
We've also extended our entry deadline to December 15, 2004. There are several categories for submission (see the link below). There will be jury prizes awarded. If you need more information on submitting to Red Stick, follow the link below.
We'll be at Animex this year to connect with our mentors, and preview some of the amazing work that always turns up there. We hope that you will pass the word along about our submission deadline to your friends and students.
