Fête de l’anim’ event in Lille

Students from Plymouth College of Art project their works on Lille’s Opera House

Around 15 teams of four European and Asian students in animation, digital arts and graphic design worked together for four days on a creative challenge to produce a video mapping performance that was screened on the façade of Lille’s Opera House. Their works were projected onto the Lille’s Opera House during the opening ceremony of Fête de l’anim’ on Friday 25 March.

The activities were part of a Creative Europe Cooperation Project called Euranim, which is a three-year educational programme exploring innovative use of animation and progressive technical possibilities, such as video mapping. Plymouth College of Art is one of the parters of Euranim, which comprises European universities of art and design, from five different countries, coordinated by the social enterprise Rencontres Audiovisuelles in Lille, France. 

Take a look at the photos of their workshopping and performance and watch the works they produced:

In additon, European animation students and professional animators also participated in an animation marathon, in which 17 teams had 48 hours to produce a 10 second-long animation. These clips were compiled to make this short film:
