Playgrounds vs. Submarine Channel: Free Your Screen & Enjoy the Process

October 5th @ De Zwijger Amsterdam

For those of you not yet in the know: Playgrounds Festival is the funniest, most original, most inspiring and most largely attended festival of motion design and animation in the Netherlands… And in 2011, this cutting edge festival is spreading it’s wings. In cooperation with Submarine Channel, Playgrounds will be organizing a special “warm up-edition” in Amsterdam to be held on Wednesday, October 5 at Pakhuis De Zwijger. Thereafter, Playgrounds Festival will continue on in Tilburg on October 6 and 7.

Playgrounds vs. Submarine Channel is an inspiring, unique and intimate event with international creatives and the best of the best in the motion picture industry: animation, title design, music videos, commercials, character design, VFX and gaming. This year there will be a special focus on the process of moving image creation and design. The best studios from around the world have been invited to abandon their usual posts behind their computer screens and come present their work, live, to you.

The event in Amsterdam plans to focus on “Forget the Film, Watch the Titles” in the morning, whereby international title designers including Neil Huxley (Watchmen) and DVEIN (event titles for OFFF and F5) will share an intimate perspective on their processes in designing film titles. Meanwhile in a second room, there is the opportunity to view the highly acclaimed “Watch the Titles on Tour” screening.

Some of the Playgrounds vs. Submarine Channel speakers include:

Encyclopedia Pictura (produced the music video ‘Wanderlust’ of Björk) – Physalia – Tokyoplastic – David Wilson (Best New Director, UK Music Video Awards) – Neil Huxley (art direction of Watchmen and AVATAR) – DVEIN (known for the title sequence TOCA ME and their work for MTV) – HEYHEYHEY & more to come!!!

In Hall 2 an all day screening is programmed for features from onedotzero and Submarine Channel.
