2nd October I went to the 24th Raindance Film Festival, there were 10 shorts animations were showed.

Animations are described as following words:

These animations are created to escape the narrative impulse of cinema using the principles of randomness and analogue generative cinema. These are intimate and human films, many inspired by true events and based on the individual director’s personal experience. These shorts are testament to the view that filmmakers preoccupied with “the right way” to make a film tend to be afraid to experiment stylistically, whereas approaching “the wrong way” opens the conditions for distinctive innovation. Some are extraordinarily outspoken while others are waggishly spirited. This is a programme infused with appreciation for abstract animation.

Here is my favourite animation because of the funny movement of characters, visual language(colour, drawing style) and also sound.
