REPORT DETAIL

These notes were taken while breastfeeding - coherence is not to be expected.

IT was a session called to explore interest and options for a theatre maker who is considering involving animation in theatre and was attended by people from a range of experience.

Richadn Headon introduced his event in Bristol in MAy (?) where they will be using animation for enhancement of a building.

We discussed using animation instead of set - do you play in front of it or with it.

It was noted just HOW LONG it takes to animate and that this is a very time consuming medium to work in.

This provoked discussion abouit funding.

ACE don't quite understand it as theatre and see it as film yet BFI would class it differently.

Frustration was expressed by an emerging artist about projects she has wanted to deliver but not been able to fund due to the amount of time required to animate. ultimately artistic quality is compromised.

We discussed other sensory technologies like smell - hacking Glade air freshners

Vibration

tactile fabrics in animation

How 12frames per second animation allows the audience a split second to dream.

As ever the action could lie in collaboration - puppeteers meeting animators metting theatre technicians.

I also scribbled these words down with my left hand and include them here in case they are a reference for anyone…

Beef
Dale Air
Little Angel (theres someone there who is interested in supporting artists working in animation)
