Provisional Ranking in Animacam Festival III edition

It promised surprises and this is ... a very tight final at the third edition of Animacam.

In the animation retrspective category all is the same, but the situation can change at any time since the three films are candidates for very few points between them.

In the category of best animated short, the revelation of these last days, "The carnivorous flower," is like a bullet to the throne holding Tatian. The film is second place and climbing ...

While, in multimedia category, "The days of kraulio" came back to the first place, but followed closely by "The Pavilolos" its not throw in the towel.

The classification is as follows:

Best multimedia animation
The days of Kraulio
The Pavilolos
Rosamond Suona

Best Animated Short Film
Tatian the tree house
The carnivorous flower
Velika bela lakrdja

Best Animation Retrospective
Joli Dragon
Le petit Chaperon Rouge

Anything can happen ... you decide, register and vote here

Provisional ranking of all categories of Animacam

Surprises in the provisional ranking in the absence of 8 days for the closing of the polls.

Media in category "Los pavilolos" oust "Los días de Kraulio" in the first place, while, behind Suona Rosamond is pushing hard.

In the short film category  "La Flor Carnivora" reached third place at the expense "La competitiva", while narrowing the gap between "Tatián" and "Bela Lakrdija Velika."

Which also adamant the dispute is in the category of retrospective with constant ups and down by the three favorites.

With all this, the ranking is presented as follows:

Best multimedia animation

The pavilolos
The days of Kraulio
Rosamond Suona

Best Animated Short Film

Tatian the tree house
Velika bela lakrdja
The carnivorous flower

Best Animation Retrospective

Five films presented in Animacam are competing in the Ourense Film Festival

This week, Ourense is celebrating the OUFF: XV Ourense International Film Festival, Animacam friend festival. Following the opening party last Saturday with the film 18 meals, produced by Tic Tac Producciones and directed by Jorge Coira, this week there are eleven screens projecting films in Ourense, aimed to show the selected films of the 15th edition. The Festival Organizing Committee has selected four animated films that are also present in the III International Festival of Animation Online: Lebensader by Angela Steffen, Fard David Alapont and Luis Briceno, Frère Benoît et les Grandes Orgues by Michel Dufourd and Nocta by Iván Díaz. In addition, in a new Section called Made in Ourense, there is another film: Nouturnio de Celanova, by Raúl García.

The German Angela Steffen introduced her new animation Lebensader, a beautiful story between a father and daughter in which she explains the universe is through a small piece of a tree. By Luis Briceno and David Alapont, with the production Jeremy Rochigneux, Fard is a new short film blessed with a classic sense of style. With its soft color palette and clean lines, Fard evokes a kind of classic neo-futurism.

The Swiss Michel Dufourd presents Frère Benoît and the great orchestra, a story that takes place in a medieval monastery featured by Brother Benoît, a burly, friendly, bumbling monk has just received orders from his superiors to clear the huge organ in the church. Accompanied by Françoise, his chicken, try to do his best. Despite their good intentions, it triggers a catastrophe after another. Finally, Iván Díaz, a prominent promoter of Gata Estudio, after participating in the last edition of Animacam with his work Cuervo- also selected in last year's OUFF-back showing his new film: Nocta. A work that shows the consequences of a night of partying, alcohol and psychotropic substances.

Finally, Nouturnio de Celanova is a 3D animation made by Raúl García from Ourense. Nominated in the Galician Awards Mestre Mateo for best animated short, it´s based on the poem "Nouturnio" written by Manuel Curros Enríquez, the short tells the story of an old man sentenced to flee their homes to face the "nouturnio" of his life.
