The Animation Council of the Philippines just finished making the shortlist of entries of their annual competition for original content animated shorts and the screening of entries will begin this Thursday in Robinson’s Galeria Cinema. I just got a chat with Grace Dimaranan of Top Peg animation studio and President of the Animation Council, she just shared to us that there were more than 150 entries for the contest and 80% of it made it to the finals and having their own category such as music videos, shorts, clay, stop motion, 3D, 2D and etc.

The competition is  big and all of them are good, in a professional level, these animators who joined the contest are independent, amateurs, small studio and student animators.  Grace also mentioned that all studio and members of the council will have an exhibition called “Dugtungan”. Each studio will make an animated story and leads them without a script or storyboard, the main reference that they will use is a certain shape illustration from were they can start and also end. And later on they will connect all those animated pieces into one story. This will show the different style and approach of each studio on putting together a story without coordinating with each other.

This activity is one of the major project of the council for the original content, and also they are on provincial school tour in promoting animation and getting talents as well.
