During the 2011 Ottawa International Animation Festival the Montreal-based art initiative EN MASSE and friends created a 6’ by 16’ mural during the festival weekend, while we documented and animated the creation. Since then, we have taken all that footage, added to it and created the 2012 festival signal film with an “A capella” soundtrack completed by Bryant Vance.
This film is being played before every screening at the 2012 OIAF, Sept 19-23 and we're very grateful for the wonderful opportunity given to us by the festival! See you at the fest, follow us on twitter as we actually see the films this year.
