Edinburgh International Film Festival 2018 - McLaren Animation 015
Another set of photos of some of the animators, this time from the second strand of the annual McLaren Animation short films at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The McLarens are always one of my favourite parts of the film fest, two showings of around ten or so short animated works using pretty much every kind of approach, from modern CG animation to traditional hand-drawn, stop-motion, mixed media on all sorts of subjects. Rather nicely it is the audience who comes along to support these events who votes to decide the winner of the McLaren Award.
It is pretty common for me to see some of the works I watched at the McLarens strand cropping up in the BAFTA and Oscar short animation categories a few months later. Very good international showcase for animation talent, with many of those taking part new to the medium and just starting out their film-making career.
