Brothers McLeod and Christmas Social – Dec 17th

Fabulous news, our guest animators have confirmed they will visit us on December 17th for our final meeting of 2009.

The award winning, BAFTA nominated Brothers McLeod (Greg and Myles) have a track record in creating animation for TV, web, and film. They are represented by Aardman Animations as Commercials Directors and have directed campaigns for Skittles, Stena Line, and Guinness amongst others. They have written and directed series for BBC (Pedro and Frankensheep) and Tate Galleries (Art Sparks), and written for a range of TV, Games and web projects (Noddy, SpongeBob SquarePants, NHS Relationships and Sex). They have a well established YouTube channel and have had several internet successes including Spamland and Fuggy Fuggy which was picked up by MTV and Mondo Media. In 2009, they were nominated for a BAFTA in the Short Animation category for their film Codswallop.

Check out loads of their animations online on the Brothers McLeod web site, You Tube channel, subscribe to Twitter updates, oh all of that!

As it’s the Christmas period, we’ll be having pizza, beer, juice and anything else you can bring yourself, and running the Dreamweaver group Adobe software raffle ($2,000 dollars worth up for grabs).

And please bring along your own short animations to show us too, to keep with the animation theme for the evening, or just be prepared to show us your favourite online animation.

Here’s the deal: a one minute recommendation or presentation = one pizza meal!

When: Thursday December 17th 7:30pm – 9:30pm, and afterwards most likely at the Rusty Bicycle pub.

Where: OFVM, Film Oxford. Map here: http://bit.ly/ofvm-loco
