Boosting Careers of Young Animation Artists with Video-Mapping

EURANIM

The Euranim project focuses on structuring the European animation sector around innovative digital technologies.

  • About

    The Animation Workshop has hosted two of its residencies in 2016 and 2017, bringing a number of young European artists to the city where they collaborated to create a video mapping show on the Arsenal building.

    The Euranim partnership is comprised of European universities of Art and Design from five different countries and is coordinated by the association Rencontres Audiovisuelles in Lille (FR). More than 60 associated partners from creative industries, public institutions, and universities across the UK, France, Belgium, Hungary, Finland, and Denmark are brought together in the Euranim Project. The project will provide young animation artists with new digital skills - thanks to an ambitious program of eight artistic residencies in five European countries, which focuses on teaching video mapping. This video mapping technique is still emerging and consists of projecting animated images onto physical volumes. It is usually used on facades of remarkable historical buildings in order to emphasize the patrimony.

    Euranim will contribute to give young artists’ careers and universities’ staff an international dimension via the organization of five international cultural events, where more than 45.000 visitors are expected. Eight showcasing events will disseminate the results of the project activities, and enable the building of a sustainable network for both artists and universities. The artists will with the video mapping showcases demonstrate the opportunities offered by animation and video mapping in terms of artistic creativity, commercial use and wider development of the society. Euranim will produce several evaluations of the sector in order to fully contribute to this development.
