It is an honour to work with Talenthouse on this project and I’m looking forward to seeing the variety of entries and their inspirations interpreting my work. I’m excited to see it develop into another medium and to share that journey and process with the animation community - Dave White
British contemporary artist Dave White is inviting animators to collaborate with him on a brand new piece of art to be displayed at his forthcoming exhibition at The Hospital Club in London. The exhibition, entitled 'Natural Selection' explores threatened animal species presented via large scale oil paintings and works on paper. This is an opportunity for animators to collaborate with Dave White on his biggest exhibition to date.
Animators of all techniques including 3D, 2D, hand-drawn and stop-motion are invited to submit their existing animation showreel and a written summary of how they would animate Dave White's 'Amazonian Parrot' artwork. Alternatively artists may submit an animation of the Amazonian Parrot and may use the provided downloadable image as a feature in their animation. The object of the brief is to capture the movement, energy, dynamism and suspense of the subject matter and should demonstrate your creativity and animating skills.
This opportunity is open globally. Dave White will work remotely with the winning animator should they be from outside of the UK. The winning artist to be given full credits at the exhibition.
