Call For Entries: ROLL YER OWN 2005

UPDATE: The deadline for submissions has now been extended to Monday, February 7th. The screening will take place in mid-February.

Each year, ASIFA-Atlanta hosts a screening of local animation talent, called ROLL YER OWN. It's always an interesting show as you never know what to expect. In the past we've witnessed animation students' work from local art schools as well as from Savannah's College of Art & Design (SCAD), to independent filmmakers, to recent work by local professional studios. It's a great way to check out what's going on in the ATL animation-wise, and a great way to rub elbows with people in the industry. Pencil-tests, animatics, storyboards, short films, side projects, commercials, broadcast work, demo tapes - you name it - are all welcome. 2D, stop-motion, CG, rocks and sticks, anything - we'll show it. If you're a fan of animation in general, you may find it interesting to see all the different types of techniques and styles showcased.

This an open call for entries for this event, which will take place in Midtown's The Red Chair off of Amsterdam. Submissions due by January 31st. The exact time and date for Roll Yer Own will be announced later on, so keep checking up here at The Ward-O-Matic for further details. Click on the wonderful and fabulous image above (yes, I designed it) for a larger version of the poster. Print it out, make copies, post it up at your work, school, home, what have ya. In case you can't view the details, here's what it says:

  3. But I don't know HOW to animate! (There must be at least a half-dozen pros in town who'll back me up on this one)
    Roll yer own WHAT, exactly? Cigarettes? What sort of degenerate hippie-happening are you promoting, you frizzly-faced subversive?
