Animation: A Giant Montage of Gifs Created By Dozens of Animators


Close to 40 different animators contributed gifs to GIF-JAM 2014, part of Animation Breakdown’s Free For All programming for LA-based cinematheque, Cinefamily. The video was edited together by Kevin Sukho Lee (Nickelodeon’s director of animation development) to music provided by Paul Fraser.

My favourite part comes at the 1:52 mark. Watch the animation below!

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent HERE or on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
