A new animation festival launches this month, backed and hosted by Light House Media Centre and Wolverhampton Art Gallery. From 22-23 October, Flip brings together leading animation groups from the West Midlands to provide talks and sessions on working in the sector and to showcase their work (pictured, Slaughterhouse by The CharacterShop). The event culminates in a screening of the Best of the British Animation Awards on 23 October.
The visual identity combines the club’s “illustrious heritage” and “future glory” with an eye to digital platforms and more casual fans.
The week-long festival will also host speakers including interaction design expert Daljit Singh and representatives from Heatherwick Studio.
His installation for London Design Festival draws on a number of inspirations, from clubbing in the 1990s to fake Crimean villages.
