Sir John Lubbock’s Pet Wasp at QUAD in Derby

Laurie Hill

I’m happy to say that Sir John Lubbock’s Pet Wasp, the micro-short film I’ve made with the fab Osbert Parker, is screening at the QUAD in Derby as part of the Anim18 VR Gallery.

An Anim18 and Animate Projects commission, supported by Lottery funds from Arts Council England, British Film Institute and British Council.

The blurb from the website says this:

QUAD is excited to present the Anim18 VR gallery, a newly commissioned animated experience, celebrating British Animation, supported by Film Hub Wales and Chapter (Cardiff) working with the BFI Film Audience Network.

QUAD has created a fully VR representation of the main gallery for visitors to explore 2D animated works celebrating British Animation. Working with local media production pioneers V21 Artspace to take 3D scans of our main gallery and recreate the space in a fully explorable 3D environment. The final work is available to view in the QUAD resource area from November 2018, as well as at participating venues around the country. 

The exhibition represents all four of the Anim18 key strands of Politics and Persuasion, Young at Heart, Breaking Boundaries and Connections and will display newly commissioned work through Anim18, as well as existing animations from the British animation history.

Featuring Artists: Anushka Kishani Naanayakkara, Ian Gouldstone, Jessica Ashman, Kate Sullivan, Leeds Animation Workshop, Leo Crane, Noriko Okaku, Osbert Parker, Pixelheads (National Videogame Museum), Ruth Coggins, Laurie Hill, Samantha Moore, Seeing Sound, plus the Anim18 AnimJam winner.
