Winner of the international competition web animation HAFFTube 2010!
Silver Junkie: MARIA By Gitte Le Bruyn
Not too long ago I wrote about an interesting animation, SILVER JUNKIE: MARIA by Maria Gitte Le Bruyn. I have just received a press release from the prestigious Holland Animation Film Festival to be held 3 - 7 November in Utrecht, Holland that MARIA has been selected as the International Web Animation Competition.
Belgian visual artist Gitte Le Bruyn (1985) created a series of oil paintings on glass, which she lit and photographed, inspired by the music of the Belgian band Silver Junkie (Tino Biddeloo). Full of contrast in black-and-white, intense, with generous brushstrokes, unruly and hopeful. Gitte Le Bruyn graduated as a visual artist in 2008 from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
The web competition HAFFTube has been open for entries for a few months. The channel filled up with an international state of the art selection of contemporary animated films from all over the world with a maximum length of 5 minutes. At the set limit of 50 films, the voting began. An international jury of filmmakers selected Silver Junkie: Maria out of the shortlist of 50 titles. Gitte Le Bruyn will be hosted at the Holland Animation Film Festival next year, with a festival pass and arranged stay in a hotel. Congratulations Gitte.
