About

The Light Surgeons are kicking off the research and development phase of an exciting new live cinema project called “SOUND IN PICTURES” next month with an intensive two-day animation workshop exploring “visual music” at Stour Space in Hackney Wick, East London on the 27th & 28th of October 2018.

They are looking for 12 participants, a mix of hearing, deaf and partial hearing participants to take part in this process. There will be four different animation techniques explored in the workshop each being lead by a different artist. Two of these animation units will explore the translation of a piece of existing music into a collaborative animation and two will explore the generation of silent animations that will then inform a new piece of music.

The resulting work from the workshop will be edited into two short experimental films that will feature on the Anim18 website and that will be screened at a special showcase event in the Theatre space at Rich Mix on the 1st of December this year.

This initial phase of the project is being supported by a grant from Anim18, a year-long celebration of British Animation led by Film Hub Wales and Chapter and being developed in collaboration with Live Cinema UK. The long-term goal for the project is to create a new live cinema show that is partly audiovisual performance and partly expanded lecture that will bring both deaf and hearing audiences together to explore participation and interaction on a multitude of levels.

Deadline for applications is the 7th of October.
