Animate Projects presents its new commissioned films online.

AnimateTV 2008
Seven extraordinary films, commissioned in association with Channel 4 and Arts Council England.

Artists: Barnaby Barford, Suky Best, Stephen Irwin, Michael Aubtin Madadi, Emily Richardson, Tal Rosner, Christoph Steger.

Employing a broad range of techniques from rotoscope to timelapse and exploring a variety of themes, including the decline of the dawn chorus and the ambitions of an outsider artist, together they represent the freshest artistic talent from the UK.

The AnimateTV films are now available to watch at, along with in-depth video interviews with the artists, and essays by Karen Alexander, Roy Exley, Andrew Kötting, Jeremy Myerson, and Marketa Uhlirova.

The AnimateTV films will be screening in cinemas at:
Aurora Festival in Norwich, on Friday 14 November
Encounters Festival, Arnolfini Cinema, Bristol, Saturday 22 November
FACT, Liverpool, Wednesday 26 November
Tate Modern, London, Friday 5 December

Stop. Watch.
Animate Projects and the Royal Society of Arts’ Arts & Ecology programme invited seven artists to make short films for the internet that address ecological emergencies.

They take diverse approaches – some melancholy, some humorous – and consistently and powerfully challenge common perceptions and clichés of current debates about environmental crises and their human impact.

Artists: Jordan Baseman, Phil Coy, Christine Ödlund, Manu Luksch, Elodie Pong, Simon Woolham, Young-Hae Chang Heavy Industries

Also screening at venues across the UK and internationally over the next few months, including: ZKM, Germany, DCA, Dundee, Scotland and Khoj Centre, New Delhi, India.

Blur Belt, Sebastian Buerkner
We are pleased to premiere online, Blur Belt, the latest astonishing film by Sebastian Buerkner, co-commissioned with The Showroom Gallery, London.

Blur Belt refers to the language of film to create a sophisticated work that signals a shift in Buerkner’s practice. With five distinct chapters, each beginning with the establishing shot of a vertically striped glass door, and an evocative accompanying soundtrack, Buerkner evokes a history of filmmaking from Hitchcock to Lynch.

Blur Belt was first shown in Buerkner’s Emotion Machine exhibition at The Showroom in May 2008.

See the film at, along with an interview with Sebastian Buerkner, and an essay by Kirsty Ogg, former Director of the Showroom Gallery.
