Flip festival follow up
A little bit late after the event but it’s been a busy stretch!
I wanted to post a follow up to my day at Flip Animation Festival in Wolverhampton (at the Light House Media Centre). I commented on the great line up including Cosgrove Hall, Bill Plympton, Marc Silk (voice of Johnny Bravo people!) and the list goes on.
I went for the Saturday and it was the warm reception I expected. A day ticket was cheap (about a tenner) and got you into everything, plus it was a nice venue for such a crowd as most people hung around chatting outside of the screenings. Light House did a spot on job and a special mention to Drew Roper who did a super-human job of schmoozing all the animation ‘stars’, keeping everyone happy and generally busting his behind making the event a success.
The highlights for me were the panel discussion about 2D and the presence of one of my favourite animation duos, the Brothers McLeod. Looking forward to next year’s event and what they can rustle up for the certain-to-be larger crowd once word gets out about this years hit.
