Best of AIM at ACMI

 

 

 

Animation is an astonishing illusion. Few of us ever get to know the thrill of breathing life into the inanimate. Of creating idiosyncratic characters and unique settings in which to depict their antics, none of which would ever have existed but for our imagination. Of fabricating a story telling space, interactive or linear, where anything is possible, in the eternal hope of connecting one's ideas with a large audience of strangers.

Students of RMIT's Centre for Animation & Interactive Media (AIM), have been creating wondrous animated films and multimedia productions for well over a decade. Many of these works have won various awards of excellence and have been exhibited widely at prestigious national and international festivals. Here is a chance to see the best of this rich and diverse collection in three individual 60 minute programs at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Federation Square,
Monday 11, Thursday 14, and Friday 15 August.
Session times: 6.30 pm
Ticket Prices: Adult - $11, Student/Concession - $ 9
Restricted admission to 18 years and above.

Each session showcases a different and diverse compilation of short productions which include a number festival successes and award winners. These works are the outcome of an intense year of study during which students explore an unfamiliar art form and its technology and learn how to forge it into an of expression of the heart and mind. They are fresh and innovative pieces which celebrate the amazing diversity of animation technique, and the way in can be harnessed to tell all kinds of engaging stories - sometimes on a surprisingly large cinematic scale.

See traditional hand-drawn animation, claymation, experimental, puppet, 3D computer animation, digital special effects, and hybrid forms as well as pioneering interactive work. From classic cartoon sight gags, to dark social comment, from complex narrative works, to sublime moments in the orchestration of moving image and sound, from insightful portrayals of the human condition, to the purely experimental - it's all here to titillate the eyes and ears.
