  • THANK YOU!

THANK YOU!

After three amazing inspiring, breathtaking, highly educational, heartwarming (among other superlatives) days of Playgrounds Festival we say goodbye. So nice that you could join us, and take the effort to learn from the greatest and follow us on social media. Let’s get together again next year!

Don’t ask us to pick any highlights of the programme. Every artist had another theme, approach, working method, skill... That’s what Playgrounds Festival is all about: showing the diversity of the field of digital art and giving as many approaches as possible. If you'd like to get an impression of Playgrounds Festival 2013, please check out the pics on our facebookpage or watch the whole collection on flickr.

In a Forest | Fons Schiedon

Fons Schiedon's short - In a Forest - is finally online! https://vimeo.com/77579558

The fantabulous three-minute animated thriller opens with an exciting pursuit through a forest that ends in... not a forest. A film about believing in an illusion. Directed by Dutch filmmaker and artist Fons Schiedon (fonsschiedon.com) and produced by Submarine.nl, In A Forest is part of a very cool, ongoing initiative by the Dutch Film Fund, Ultrakort, that aims to reintroduce short films back into cinemas.

And he is our very own moderator of Playgrounds 2013!

The Mega Plush | Matt Burniston

Set in the shadows of a gritty underworld, a war is brewing. The Mega Plush, a group of four plush toy vigilantes, are struggling against the uprising of the SOC (Society of Chimps) army. Good vs evil. Bear vs sock monkey. The question is "who has the stuffing to survive?" Watch the first episode of this epic showdown! http://vimeo.com/75215187#
Artist talk
  • Lushlife - Magnolia

Lushlife - Magnolia

"Every word to "Magnolia" (188) was handmade using cardboard (discarded from grocery stores), hot glue guns, and paint pens. Random people at over 65+ locations and a handful of friends were used as rappers throughout the video. The video was done completely practical (no CGI) and wound up costing a little under $80."
