We had our advisory panel meeting last week, followed by interviews, and finally made a decision. It was particularly tough this year, especially when we got down to the final six.
The AnimateTV 2009 Advisory Panel members were: Ruth Jarman (artist, Semiconductor), Alex Maclean (Creative Director/Founder, Airside), and Polly Staple (Director, Chisenhale Gallery), along with Jacqui Davies and Gary Thomas (Co-directors of Animate Projects), and Ruth Fielding from Lupus Films - C4's animation consultants who are developing 4mations.tv.
And the commissioned artists are...Thomas Hicks, Petra Freeman, Cordelia Swann, and Sarah Wood.
Lots of information very soon at animateprojects.org
AnimateTV is commissioned by Channel 4, and supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
