Readers of Animation Magazine have chosen a traditional 2D animation work, Le Building, as the first quarterly winner of the World Animation Celebration Online (WAC-O), a web-based festival of animation short films from around the world.
Le Building was created by students at the Gobelins School in France. In the film, an old woman tries to get her neighbour to stop singing so loudly in the shower, but sets in motion a chain of events that threatens to bring down her whole apartment complex.
The film is available for viewing at www.animationmagazine.net/wac. WAC-O currently features a total of 45 animated shorts, including nine brand-new entries recently posted. Entries represent a wide range of animation techniques including CG, hand-drawn, Flash and stop-motion, and vary in genre from comedy, drama, science-fiction, horror and fantasy.
New films are added each month and are immediately subject to voting. Festival visitors can view all films and vote for their favorites at www.animationmagazine.net/wac. Film submissions are received on a rolling basis. Submission forms and additional information can also be found at www.animationmagazine.net/wac.
