South African animation showcases in Brazil!

Anthony has just returned from Brazil where he attended Anima Mundi as representative of Animation SA (ASA). As vice-chair of ASA, Anthony put together a compilation of quirky music videos, diverse short films, and cutting-edge commercials which formed part of the South African showcase at the most important animation festival in South America.

"Rio was incredible and it was inspiring to see that South African animation was so well-received on an international platform", says Anthony.

The compilation from South Africa is the first of its kind and highlights the growth of this fledgling industry. It is by no means exhaustive and offers a taste of the incredible talent that reflects the colour, chaos and contradictions of living in South Africa. It features the diversity in style and aesthetic of our home-grown industry - from the work of internationally acclaimed artist William Kentridge, to Mike Scott's wacky music video for jazz-electro duo Goldfish to Jacquie Trowell's reflective, Golden Bear-nominated Beyond Freedom, as well as the multiple award-winning Public Service Announcement, The Rubbish Monster by Braam Jordaan.

Thanks to Anima Mundi for the amazing opportunity! Pin It
