Ugh, I'm so mad I missed the mixer!
It's so cool finding a community that supports and collaborates with animators. Animations are one of my best forms of art, and my favorite films are the ones that use animations and real life. Recently, I was able to find an amazing film with live-action and animation that was extremely powerful in discussion of drug abuse and Hollywood corruption. Film Festival Flix has a ton of that comes from amazing independent filmmakers and I was able to watch The Congress on this platform. The film uses animation to paint a cartoonish reality based on addiction that Robin Wright, playing a fictionalized version of herself, unfortunately finds herself at the center of. The film was beautifully shot and drawn, keeping the humanity of the characters while fitting them in a world like no other. There's a ton of other films from the VOD platform to enjoy, but feel free to reach out and tell me which films have drawn your eye!
I am working on a animated series looking for people who wants to team up . Please dm me if you are interested
