PRESS RELEASE May 28th 2013
For immediate release
The KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival is in search of the newest 3-D stereoscopic animated shorts
This is a call to all 3-D stereoscopic animators! Nowadays visual media, especially film, cannot be imagined without the extensive use of stereoscopy. While the 3-D revolution advances further in every field, the (independent) animated short in particular keeps utilizing the technique in an innovative way, exploring its influence on and place in a films' narrative. The KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival has been following the evolution of stereoscopy with great interest and introduced a 3-D Stereoscopic Animation Competition to their international animation competition last year. The competition turned out to be a great success, leaving the audience in awe of the value that stereoscopy can add to a story. This year the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival proudly organizes the 3-D Stereoscopic Animation Competition for the second time.
Among other competitions, the 3-D Stereoscopic Animation Competition for the KLIK! Amsterdam Animation Festival 2013 is accepting submissions until . So don’t forget to submit your newest 3-D stereoscopic animated short before it’s too late! Submitting is free. You can submit your animation either by sending a Blu-ray by old-fashioned mail or by e-mailing a plain simple (3-D!) YouTube/Vimeo link. A submission’s running time shouldn’t exceed 25 minutes and it has to be produced later than January 1st, 2012. Aside from the 3-D category you submit to, your entry will also automatically compete for the KLIK! Amsterdam Audience Award.
