For Animex 2014 artist Max Hattler will be sharing his experience of producing digital animated work for different platforms and exhibition spaces. Max is an artist who experiments with the tools and processes of animation to produce abstract artworks across a range of media from mobile applications to installations in public spaces to audiovisual performance. In his performances he uses a custom software visual instrument called the Hattlerizer to play textured geometric shapes in real time. Max produced a short film for Channel 4 with Animate Projects in 2012 for broadcast and online exhibition.

Free. No booking required. Limited places so please arrive early to avoid dissapointment.

Pipeline is an initial series of events following the publication of Accelerate Animation, a report on the practice and professional needs of creative animators – http://accelerateanimation.com. This masterclass is produced by Animate Projects in association with Animex 2014 and mima, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
