Animation, Charlie Kaufman once helpfully observed, “is a series of static images creating the illusion of movement.” If he's that incisive about his own work, what would he make of yours? SMPLE Film Fest is moving faster than expected, and it’s left us a little animated. Okay, more than a little. A fair bit. Fuel for our playful side, like we’re taking cues from Steamboat Willie whistling at the captain’s wheel.
With around two months to go until the competition closes – which, by the way, we’ll parade around our site and socials, showing off the best new filmmakers before they judge our in-person event next year – we thought you might like to see we're rewatching.
