For the celebration of Kickers’ 40th birthday, the brand needs you to make some noise and launch the invasion of the red and green! The videos must be happenings & flash mobs: they have to be spontaneous, authentic performances that actively engage the public (the public can also be extras) or the surrounding environment. (don’t hesitate to google the terms happenings & flashmobs for example videos ;) here's a small list to give you ideas: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-zWgSGGPC4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQ3d3KigPQM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e_ce75hUagg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwMj3PJDxuo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkYZ6rbPU2M http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PwkoqRVTdEk The emblematic colors being red and green, you have to focus your video on the invasion of these two elements, but not their confrontations!

All-Girl Team Reigns Supreme in Animation Contest

By Amelia Apsari on March 14, 2010 23:00 Featured Authors 0

This all-girl trio were among the victors to walk away with a USD 1,000 prize in the recent Die-logs video/animation competition launched by the Lien Foundation.

Tell us about your team Well, we're 3 animation students currently pursuing our diploma. We're 3 odd balls who like to experiment with different mediums and different style of animation.

Team Onemoredrop

What made you want to participate ‘Dielogs’? It was a good opportunity to challenge ourselves and our creativity. And such opportunity isn't easy to come by. We were also interested in sharing our thoughts and opinion about the topic 'Death' and also how others perceive death.

What’s the inspiration behind your entry? Our inspiration all came from our own personal experience and our perception of death. The final animation was the combination of all our experience and perception of death thru our relatives and family members.

What things do you enjoy about eYeka and what are some things which you hope could be improved on/added in the future? The people there are really friendly! They are very approachable and they consistently urge us to go on and encourage us. And they have a really nice workplace! Everything seems really good really (:

Any advice to your fellow aspiring animators? Practice and practice and more practice. IDEAS ARE EVERYWHERE! After all it's bringing your ideas to life! Lastly, don't be afraid to express yourself thru animation! ;)

Degré7 winner announced!

By Bastien Péan on March 11, 2010 09:35 Call for entries 0

Here come the results of the Degré7 contest! We received a lot of submissions for the fist summer collection of the brand. But there is only one winner, and the jury chose babate for his concept. You will find it on this page. Congrats to him! He wins 2500€ and will meet the Degré7 team very soon in France. Francois Gadrey, Degré7's CEO, wanted to congratulate the winner himself, and explain the jury’s choice: “We really appreciated his graphic approach. We can feel the fluctuation of the body (with the different actions) and the spirit (with the meditation standing). In short, we can feel in these humans are always thinking or acting. We liked the colors, the sobriety with the very coloured backgrounds and the monochromic shadow.” Congratulations ;)
