Bloc Animation Project
“From Digital Animation to Stop Motion Animation, we at Bloc Projects wanted to showcase with the Bloc Animation Project the complex art of animation with its diverse styles, story-lines and creative techniques. The independent animators who participated in this film are bringing together their own creative ideas to a World where the typical film viewer has a preconceived vision of what an animated film should be like. These predetermine points of view are due to the enormous budget, influence and success that large corporate animations studios have. We are very proud to present this film as we want theater visitors to discover what can be done through the magical world of the animated film process.”
