Ars Electronica Animation Festival
Monday Session II
14:00 - 15:00: Prix Selection: Music Videos:
With the revival of analog trick techniques, the retro look has become totally hot in the music video production field. Rarely in the past has this genre included as much animation as it has in the last two years.
15:30 - 16:30: Prix Selection: Time in Motion:
Movement, rhythm, speed and standstill are the ingredients of this program. The spectrum ranges from a chase cartoon to suggestive visual music in which image, color, movement and sound blend together.
19:00 - 20:30: Prix Selection: Exquisite Monsters:
The world of computer animation is inhabited by many different species of monsters—friendly ones and menacing ones too, those that are mechanical, animalistic and human. The computer becomes a genetics lab in which the engineers’ inventiveness knows no limits.
21:00 - 22:00: Prix Selection: Late Night:
A program for night people with a dark sense of humor: offbeat situations, stirring flashes of inspiration and trashy aesthetics assure a thoroughly tolerable chill-out.
22:30 - 23:30: Prix Selection: Visual Effects and Commercials:
There’s hardly a feature film or ad spot made today that doesn’t utilize special effects. The most common ones are high-speed or highly unusual tracking shots, utopian scenery and death-defying stunts. In some films’ credits, the FX crew takes up more footage than all the other technicians combined. This program is a “greatest hits” compilation from recent films and commercials.
