This year the UNSW Art & Design Media Arts team has programmed a special retrospective screening celebrating the very best of UNSW Art & Design’s animation, screen and film works produced over the past ten years.
This retrospective is rare opportunity to view a curated selection of Art & Design’s outstanding films, incredible 3D, 2D and stop motion animation, catch up with friends, fellow alumni, and industry professionals whilst meeting the next generation of creatives and designers.
Beginning with Alex Sim's 2005 stop frame documentation of his painting process there are over twenty-five carefully curated short films that are sure to entertain, engage and generate wonder.
John Turello’s award winning Monkey Spoon (2009) is a 3D CGI comedic take on male inter-relationship stubbornness that tips its hat to animation greats such as Chuck Jones and Bob Clampett.
Cosmin Hrincu and George Varetta’s award winning Fragments (2010), a 3D CGI animation, features rich textural qualities and dramatic lighting you can almost reach out and touch.
Sushan Yue's Butterfly Dragon (2010) is not only a beautiful treatment in hand-drawn line animation but also excels on levels of design and narrative. This simple but visually dramatic animation also has the honour of being the most viewed of all videos on the UNSW YouTube channel (currently at 1,731,844 hits!)
Anthony Russell's Circe (2009) is a thriller with a difference. Circe is an alphabetically challenged serial killer attempting to fight her attraction to the opposite sex. Home and away star Persia Blue Toll puts in a great performance as Circe, while Felix Gentle tried to bumble his way out of a date with death.
Guinevere Klevjer’s Same Day Service (2011) follows the day-dream-prone protagonist through her romantic realisations. Set in an everyday launderette, Same Day Service is a simple story of love and poetry that will warm the hearts of every cynic.
Jessica Sommerville’s Mr. Teakins Little Confectionery Shop (2013) is a beautifully rendered 3D CGI production and unnerving historical rendering of Australia’s toxic past.
There will also be flowing beverages and a tempting array of food all evening. Please join us for drinks after the second screening.
