A chance to watch the works of some underrepresented voices at Punanimation's biggest show yet.
With #visiblewomen currently trending on Twitter, it's a good time for women animators to join forces with other under-represented voices in the industry and take on the 'boys club' feel of animation.
Punanimation are an outfit doing just that, and this September will see a new exhibition at Dalston's Pocko Gallery showcasing the varied motion and illustration talent they've assembled so far in the Punanimation directory. Animators taking part include Daniela Uribe, Wednesday Studio (below) and Justyna Stasik, who have contributed their own takes on the group's logo for the show, along with a series of animated shorts.
Punanimation was initially formed in 2015 as a Facebook group, with the aim to empower, promote and connect women, trans and non-binary people working in the largely male animation and motion industry, sharing advice and disseminating their work amongst friends. The group transformed into a fully fledged platform on International Women’s Day this year, with the Pocko show being their biggest exhibition to date.
For a sneak preview of the animators involved, check out this video from the group featuring works from no less than 19 animators.
Catch the show at the Pocko Gallery in Dalston, London, starting with a private view on September 6th and ending on October 19th 2018.
