For July’s theme we joined in the fun of the Gertrude Projection Festival, taking on the theme of ELEMENTS and a special “In De Loop” festival screening at The Wilde on Gertrude Street sponsored by the gang at Oh Yeah Wow along with our usual Tuesday Loop screening. There were loads of submissions with many new local and international contributors which is fantastic to see, and solid crowds braved the winter weather to attend both the Gertrude Festival and the Loop screening.
The ELEMENTS were interpreted in many interesting ways but it came down to a choice between a twisted parody of Captain Planet by Andrew Onorato and the endless struggle of an Indian magician by Oscar Gomez. In the end the audience gave the magician something to smile about, declaring him July’s winner!
Following the “In De Loop” screening the wonderful Nicky Pastore from Oh Yeah Wow put the drunken animators to work, running an exquisite corpse drawing contest. Check out on our facebook page for the hilarious results!
August’s theme is MAD, in honour of our new ongoing prize sponsorship from MADMAN Entertainment. This is an excellent opportunity to release your pent up rage or tap into your inner nutjob! C’MON! WHAT ARE YOU? CHICKEN?!
In other news our best of screening is set to begin screening at the Perth Cultural Centre and Sydney Concourse screens any day, keep an eye on urbanscreens.tv or our facebook page for more details on screening times and locations.
