Quick Draw is a 48 hour animation competition that I’ve been organising and promoting as part of Cardiff Animation Festival since 2017. The October 2020 edition had over 70 teams enter from all over the world.
Competing teams are given a prompt word, based on the theme of the film festival, to interpret in any way they want to. It’s really incredible seeing what’s possible on such a short deadline. We’ve had films hand-drawn on paper, stop-motion puppets, oil on glass, 3D and everything inbetween.
One of my favourite parts of organising Quick Draw is creating the visual identity and promotional materials. This year I chose to take certain elements of CAF’s 2D idents and interpret them in 3D.
