Picture of the Week #16: Animated Exeter

There’s a very good reason why this week’s picture features an angel mooning you. It’s a still from Bill Plympton’s Idiots and Angels, one of the star attractions at this year’s Animated Exeter Festival. Now into its second decade, the festival brings together workshops, screenings, public events, talks and exhibitions at various venues. Plympton will be guest speaker on Saturday, and his latest feature screens tonight – see the trailer below. While the mainstream animation studios are squabbling over whether or not CGI will become the dominant aesthetic for the industry, Plympton continues to fine-tune his own distinctive hand-painted style. I can’t wait to find out how he does it.Check out the full programme here.

If you’re in or near Exeter, don’t miss Rose Bond’s animated projection on the walls of Devon’s Crown Court. It runs Friday to Sunday, 7pm – Midnight. I’ll come back with photos if you can’t make it…
