FILE ANIMATION – GAMES RIO 2011 (Rio de Janeiro)

12th April -08th may 2011
File | Electronic Language International Festival
Oi Futuro Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro

Starting from the environments and elements of games, the game animator creates new scripts, sometimes putting in contradiction the very game narrative, removing its functionality and transforming it into a new experience.
The transdisciplinarity of these experiences, performed in 8-bit, 2D, 3D, 4D and stopmotion, give an outlook of the diversity and potentiality of these animations, and at the same time enlarge the understanding of games as a language that expresses contemporaneity.
