Time for something different at our favorite festival (KLIK! Animation Festival). As you may know we are connected to the festival organizing animation workshops, creating a variation of whacky objects, events, decorations and crazy animation programs. This year we wanted to try something new, yet in the spirit of Cardboarding: working together with the audience of the festival on a big creative project! A place for the festival goers to create and experiment with their own characters and creative skills … Continue reading

Klik! Animation Festival is the best animation festival in the world! Because they aim to wake the toon character living in us all! No surprise we have some tight connections with them!

Feast of Friends

screen-shot-2012-09-02-at-17-21-50

Feast of friends is an interesting new way of approaching festivals. Everybody invited is a friend of someone invited before. Everyone invited is asked to bring something to the stage or bring something to share. We were curious how this would work out so we decided to go and do some cardboarding. We decided the theme would be “birds” and made a big tree, a videomapping, did some dj-ing and just chilled out in the sun 🙂 Team: Astrid, Mathijs, … Continue reading

On the festival we invited visitors to help us make even more big heads, too bad there was so much rain 🙂 Afterwards we used the heads as decoration for the festival in the burgerweeshuis. If you like us to come to your festival and make beautiful stuff with you and the visitors, … Continue reading
