11. - 13 APRIL 2013





  Das Pictoplasma Festival 2013 präsentiert vom 11. bis 13. April im Babylon wieder neue Kurzfilmprogramme abseits des Mainstream, die mit überraschenden Animationen, herausragenden Motion Graphics, purem Augenzucker und erfrischenden Experimentalfilmen einmal um die Welt führen.

Jeweils ab 20 Uhr bringen 4 abendfüllende Programme insgesamt über 100 Filme auf die große Leinwand, und mit ihnen eine neue Generation des Character Design.

Characters in Rhythm kompiliert die neusten animierten Figuren im perfekten Einklang zur Musik, mit Filmen von
Faceheads (RU), Celeste Potter (AUS), Andy Martin (UK), Michélé De Feudis (BE) und FriendsWithYou (USA).

Schneller geht es bei den Characters in Motion zu, mit kurzen Channel IDs und abstrakten Animations- und Werbeclips , u.a. von
Cesar Pelizer (ARG), Lucas Zanotto (IT), Lei Lei (CN) und mcbess (FR).

Characters in Narration lotet die Möglichkeiten der graphischen Figuren aus, sich im Genre des Autorenfims zu behaupten, u.a. mit dem verstörenden "The Event" von Julia Pott (UK), dem düsteren "Fänger" von Fabian Koppenhöfer (DE) oder dem prämierten "Feral" von Daniel Sousa (USA).

Abseitiger, unerklärlicher – aber durchaus stimulierend – wird die diesjährige Reise ins visuelle Unterbewusstsein beim Psychedelic Midnight Mix, mit explodierenden Farbspielen von Ori Toor (IL), digitalen Dystopien von Faiyaz Jafri (USA) und einer singenden Venus von Wilmersdorf von Jean-Jacques Flores (FR).

Am Samstag, 13. April bringt zudem um 16 Uhr und 17 Uhr ein 50-minütiges, für jüngere Figuren-Fans maßgeschneidertes Mini Plasma die kleinen Characters auf die große Leinwand. (Geeignet ab 6 Jahren).

  Helsinki based Anima Boutique, is a production company with a five year history of creating characters, commercials, and original content. Founded by producer Anttu Harlin, director Eliza Jäppinen, animator Joonas Utti, and their partner company Anima Vitae, the company’s philosophy is to cultivate a talent empowering culture in-house.
Their animation, virals and music videos have been featured in Motiongrapher, Cartoonbrew, Juxtapose and Stash.

Coming Spring they have a very special project to share during Pictoplasma, that before has been a closely guarded secret.
  Juan Carlos Paz aka BAKEA is a young Spanish illustrator and sculptor, mixing digital design, illustration and photography to create original, character driven work. After studying in Segovia he moved to Madrid, where he worked as an art director for BBDO.
Somewhere in the Spring of 2010 something must have exploded inside his head, and a new breed of creatures was born: three eyed monsters, pastel colored taxidermy, an utterly pop-infused version of a natural history museum. Today he works as a freelance and devotes as much time as possible to his personal art, continuously creating a growing bestiarium of alien creatures inhabiting real surroundings.
  Billy (Alex Godwin) is an English artist with a passion for colour and a focus on keeping happy while painting outside on the street and inside her studio.
The distinctive shapes, characters and symbols in her work are intended to communicate a colourful visual punch in a simple attempt to make other people smile and be happy too.

Billy’s paintings, often inspired by some real life events and people, mixed up with a whirl of trippy imagination and positivity, can be seen decorating the streets of Berlin, London, Madrid, South Africa and beyond.
  on Burgerman is one of the prominent key artists in the recent boom of modern day practitioners who traverse the disciplines of contemporary art, design, illustration and entrepreneurism.
His award winning work can be seen globally from gallery and bedroom walls to cinema and iPhone screens. A sense of British self-deprecation and modern-day anxiety imbues his work along with an enthusiasm for salad. Burgerman exhibits internationally and has shown work along side artists such as Banksy, Damien Hirst, Vivienne Westwood and Gerald Scarfe. He has received a Cannes Lions Advertising award, two D&AD Silver award nominations and has recently embarked on a music project as the band Anxieteam.
  El Grand Chamaco is a young Illustrator based in Los Ramones, a municipality of the State of Nuevo Leon, in Mexico. He spent his childhood growing up with his grandfather, who guided him on the paths of drawing and painting.
After a troublesome academic career he moved to Mexico City and confronted his Mexican identity on the search for a proper own voice as a creator. At the early age of 25 Grand Chamaco returned to the isolation of Los Ramones to study and perfect his style.
Only recently, thanks to the arrival of the Internet to his town, has Grand Chamaco begun to share his talent with the World.
  mr clement is a illustrator, painter and sculptor from Hong Kong famed for his apparently friendly artwork in the form of graphic novel and sculptures. He began his career at the age of 15 publishing comics in newspaper and magazines. Drawing inspiration from comics, popular culture, porn and classical music, his work softens traditional highbrow fine art by mixing it with popular sub-culture from west and east.

Utter simplicity is key to his approach, as a tool to have a more direct and pure way for people to understand his art and relate themselves to the work and the world beyond. As he says, simplicity also helps him to break down cultural boundaries.
  Jan De Coster grew up with a vivid fascination for physics, science fiction stories and hacking stuff. In college he realized that all the stories around science were a far more appealing than the theory behind them, so he dropped out and started working in advertising, where he invented stories and games for online campaigns. But soon his interest in virtual worlds tiered, and he started to invent interactive machines in the real world.
Today - finally - everything seems to snap into place: his new mission is to create down to earth science fiction narratives, by crafting imperfect robots and cybernetic installations that don’t simply help people to feel stronger - but rather more vulnerable and exposed.
  Amsterdam based illustrator Sue Doeksen creates intricate worlds that are overpopulated with bright colors, friendly shapes and hidden jokes. While her media ranges from physical, digital, pencil-drawn, paper-cut, and animated, the resulting work often leaves the viewer slightly overwhelmed by the friendly chaos containing a multitude of visual adventures.

Sue will additionally host an ongoing “Join the Paper Jam” workshop in cooperation with animators Michelle van Mil and Max Italiaander.
  Osian Efnisien was brought up high amongst the pristine glaciers of Snowdonia, North Wales. Snowed in for six months of each year he spend the dark and stormy winters in front of the fire drawing and listening to the gruesome Celtic legends of his forebears.
In art school he turned his attention towards the medium of fake advertising campaigns: Usually promoting non existent brands, organisations e.t.c , these mini campaigns were carried out by the distribution of custom made stickers, posters and/or slogans put up directly on the street. His current work is dominated by unique 2 dimensional character variations, fragile patterns and an ongoing quest in the search for new shapes and sizes.
  Felt Mistress AKA Louise Evans is a UK based stitcher who creates one-of-a-kind bespoke felt creatures.

Originally trained in fashion design and millinery, in 1994 Louise started collaborating with her partner, illustrator and toy designer Jonathan Edwards, bringing many of the skills learnt through years of work as a couture dress maker to the world of character design.

Meanwhile Felt Mistress has crafted hundreds and hundreds of unique soft sculptures, featured in countless exhibitions worldwide, and collaborated with a vast variety of artists including Pete Fowler, Ben Newman, Jon Knox and Jon Burgerman.
