This blog seeks to deterritorialise preconceived ideas about what animation is. For me, animation is the most vital and exciting art form of the 21st century: an intermedial melting-pot of many histories, approaches, disciplines and styles; a place where profound questions are raised about truth and illusion, life and death.

Expanded Animation presents some of the things I talk to my students about while I am teaching them digital animation techniques (and Animation Studies) on the MA Character Animation course at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.

Examples of my own post-animation practice can be seen on my website www.birgittahosea.co.uk.

    Submissions are now open for animated shorts under ten minutes in length with entry closing on Tuesday 30th September 2014. Entries will then be considered by the esteemed Anifest judging panel, which includes Andy Frain, Producer of the cult classic Japanese animated film Ghost in the Shell, and Michael Arias, Director of Tekkonkinkreet.

    The shortlisted films and the winners will be announced at the Canterbury Anifest Awards Ceremony at Canterbury Christchurch University’s Augustine House on Friday 31st October, in front of an audience of professionals and animation enthusiasts.

    The submitted animated shorts will be judged according to five separate categories: “Best British Short Film”, “Best International Short Film”, “Best British Newcomer”, “Best International Newcomer”, and “Critics Choice”.
