PlasticScoop will be shown at the Animator Film Festival in Poland, part of Between a Video Game and Animation.
Video game technologies are elbowing their way into the world of animated films. What’s the difference between a game and a film? After all, both of them appeal to our audiovisual perception. Sit back and enjoy a collection of animations made using technologies developed with computer games in mind. They can be seen as gameplay videos or conversely as films that could be a game. The program also presents a game world in which one of the films was made.
