Clash of the Animators

Wednesday 4 February, 10.00am - 12.00pm

Innovation Centre Lecture Theatre, University of Teesside

Making use of a simple to use animation package, Animaatiokone, Clash of the Animators will pit beginners, who have been introduced to the software via NEToons, the Animex Animation Learning Pack, against other teams with the guidance of industry professionals.

In the weeks running up to the festival, competitors have been encouraged to produce films in order to win the right to battle against each other in a half hour animation contest. The battle takes place in front of a live audience and will be filmed and screened live at the venue to add to the excitement.

The audience will then vote for the winning film with the winners being awarded a much sought after Animex Award.

So, if you'd like to see some of our speakers actually animating live, this event is the place to be.

Entry to Clash of the Animators is FREE to Festival, Pass, Game Pass and Talk Pass holders and to the public. Seats are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
