Festival of contemporary character design and art

9. + 10. April 2010

If you like animation and comics, you’ll want to keep your focus in the direction of Berlin in April 2010 for Pictoplasma’s Festival.

Pictoplasma features an international line-up of artists, directors, animators and designers both new to the scene and established within the world of art and animation. 2010’s festival will be in Berlin on April 9th and 10th where artists and animators will  “present their work in concentrated lectures and inspiring artist talks.”  CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE  2009 ANIMATION TEASER!!!…and keep in mind they’re accepting entries for 2010 until February 1, 2010.

Lets just say Pictoplasma brings together some pretty strange and awesome eye candy and spits it back out in the form of dvds, books, festivals and bizarre coloring projects.

“A vast program of animation screenings and special programs showcases the very best of today’s characters in motion, with selected work ranging from music visuals, motion graphics, narrative shorts and experimental animation.” –
