Manimation ’15 Report – Made in Manchester
Speaker: Jonathan Ashworth (Mighty Giant)
Motion North, the collective gathering for designers, animators, filmmakers and vfx artists presented the ‘Manimation Showreel’ – the very best of Manchester animation and motion design.
Jonny Ashworth introduced Motion North, a collective which started six years ago as an extension of a conversation in a pub, and now puts together regular showcase reels of the diverse range of quality animation from Manchester and the wider northern region.
The ever-expanding group meets every couple of months, and often has guest speakers from key companies based in London and beyond. The talks have a dual purpose: one is to provide motivation and inspiration to members; the other is to show and champion the quality output from the collective.
Delegates had the chance to view the six-minute showreel, a fast-paced montage featuring a broad range of styles and content.
